It's been a great journey for all of us and also this was our first ever trek and we all give a big thanks to Thrillophilia who provide us great service like their food, transport service, camping facility and their treck guide and the all facilities from their side is up to the mark ..and we really enjoyed there ....we all had a great memory. One suggestion for those who planned for nag tibba trek is "not an easy trek specially from nag tibba camp to nag tibba summit it's difficult ...it's really difficult ...

Nag tibba trek is such a breather amidst this chaotic routine life that we live. it's a perfect set up having amazing people who host you and make you comfortable throughout the trek. We started from Delhi and all the aspects regarding travel booking, cabs and pick up is managed by the Thrillophilia team in an impressive manner. They are helpful and most importantly available the whole time.The trek begins with a moderate walk and climb till the base camp on the first day you reach. You get packed lunch from the team. And this grand welcomed by an amazing view of sunset from such pristine heights.Everyone is allotted a quechua tent either on single basis or twin sharing. The night sets up with a warm bonfire with all the people around and hot served dinner. The next day trek begins early morning so take adequate sleep. Anyone who can walk every day can do this trek. It's a good way to start and know who trek gets done. The climb is moderate and is accompanied by a guide who in my case was an amazing person. He told so many stories, his own life narratives and history behind the whole place. The summit ends up with a breath taking to view from where you can see the Sahaydaris and Himalayas out far. It's just an amazing experience altogether. Things to remember. Carry less things as you yourself carry it. It's one night and two days so pack light.Carry small packs of toiletries and cosmetics. Do carry water bottle. Torch.During winters, carry gloves, scarves and good thermals.Preferably wear hiking trousers and shoes (you can easily get one from decathlon store or app) , makes it comfortable hike. Carry water. PLEASE DON'T THROW PLASTICS AT THE CAMP OR DURING THE TREK.

We did the trek on Aug 16, 2019, during the monsoon season and it was a wonderful experience. I wouldn't call this trek easy - especially for beginners or people who rarely work-out and aren't physically active. Moderate difficulty is a better-suited term for beginners and I highly recommend getting in shape and doing cardio and leg exercises around a month before your trek begins. We were only 6 people in the entire group which made the entire trek even more enjoyable. Food was good and had a homely feel to it. P.S. If you don't want to spend money on buying trekking shoes, you can also rent them at Pantwari village, the starting point of the trek.

The trek had been an amazing experience for us being the beginners.. We had 2 guides and they had been a great support to us. They really helped us through all thicks and thins in every possible way.. We were all girls in our group and we didn't face any issue of safety. Though there was little inconvenience regarding washrooms and drinking water but still the trek was organised and managed well.. Special thanks to our guides and thrillophilia????????????

This whole trek is of 11 km which can be broadly divided into 3 stages (4+4+3)km. First stage (4km) - When you reach pantawari village, a walk of 4km will be there to Nag tibba base camp. It is a tottaly rocky terrain with a quite steep slope you won't find any plain path. This walk is difficult as it is rocky terrain, steep and sudden change in altitude results in short breath. On this way there are some maggie points and natural springs. After reaching to base camp a much beautiful scenic view can be seen. Total time to reach here is 2.5 to 3 hours. Stage 2 (4km) - In the next morning you will be taken to Nag temple. This route is quite easy as your body till now has been acclimatized with the surrounding, there is no rocky terrain and the way is also not too steep. This can be done in 2 hours. You wont find any maggie point or springs on this route. The only water source available is at the temple. If you are unlucky that too will be frozen. Stage 3 (3km) - From nag temple to the Summit, the shortest and the toughest. When I went there, it's literally 5-6 feet of snow, out of 40 persons who had been come to visit nag tibba they just able to went till the temple. Only we four guys and our guide (Rawat Ji) went up till the summit. Most challenging part was to walk on the fresh snow with this much of depth. My friend was an army officer, so he and our guide both started to mark trail on the snow and we just followed there footsteps. Its was a 60 degree steep slope. But once you reach to the summit its really an amazing moment and view. Fresh snowfall made this trek difficult for us otherwise it is easy we have done this trek without any special equipment and we really did this in our sport shoes. But a request if your guide says that he cant take you to the summit as there is lots of snow kindly agree to him. With 5-6 feet of snow it not even difficult but dangerous too.

This was my First Winter trek (to Snow) though i have been to 4 treks in south India earlier, Initially i was confused on what to wear, but thanks to decathlon. ( Thermal Full set, One quick dry pant , one quick dry tshirt, one fleece , one Jacket,woolen socks , gloves , and a woolen cap , Proper shoe) was sufficient . About the trip: We booked from delhi to delhi , transport was taken care , the co-ordinators (rishab and sagar) helped by responding quickly for any questions we had. Day 1: Start from delhi kashmere gate and reach dehradun by morning. (you would be having only public toilet in the bus stand (not so great) but you have no other options. Day 2: Transported from dehradun to pantwari village . ( I was told that shoe and Jacket can be rented) - but they were not available for rent in dehradun or pantwari , so i had to buy a jacket (~2K) ,my shoes were already good enough for this trip ,so i ignored that. The Transport to pantwari village is going through hills , and for the first time i had motion sickess( i had to vomit ,though this has never happened to me before) After reaching pantwari village , we met our guide. who gave us lunch, we packet few things(water bottle , lunch provided , additional socks). and started the trek. (it was moderately difficult) ,after reaching base camp (~3 to 4 hours Uphill) , we had some snacks and enjoyed the rest of the evening. Such a Clear sky( was able to see shooting stars, satellites moving around , sunset and a good bonfire at the end). We slept in the sleeping bags provided within the tent. It was very chill at night and i felt a little pain in my bones (of leg) - my top layers were sufficient enough to cover the upper body and keep it warm). Day 3: Next day ,we started to nag tibba temple and luckily we found snowfall (for 10 mins ) in a place along with bright sunshine. Loved it. then we made it to nag tibba temple (~4kms), but not to summit (another 1.5 kms Uphill) - but since the steep was high and we didnot have proper snow shoes we had to return from temple. Ankle deep snow was found when we were walking. On reaching the base camp , we removed some layers. and had lunch and started to desend ,which was quite easy , then we got into the tourister to desend to dehradun around 5PM , reached dehradun by 8.30 PM and our bus was at 10.30PM to delhi, we had our dinner at dehradun(some hotel available) and made it to delhi next day morning at 5AM. Best : Food was Great . Precaution : Empty your stomach before the trek ,and do not over eat, if you wouldnt be comfortable to use the toilet in the tent (it wont be good - but you cant expect for more)
