The trek was very well organized. The pick up from the station was arranged on time in a tempo traveler. Journey to pantwari village is beautiful. Caution for people with motion sickness as the hilly roads can cause nausea. The guide, Mr Monu, arranged packed lunch for the up climb. The initial 1km is a steep climb with loose rocks. Thereafter it's a steady climb. The entire trek has loose rocks which makes the climb a little difficult. However the breathtaking view of the hills around will rejuvenate every soul. We carried approximately 2ltr drinking water per head. Lunch break spot is about 2km from the start point. Fresh water flowing down from the hill is available to freshen up. The final climb from lunch point to the camp site about an hour trek with adequate breaks. The camp site is beautiful and dining tent was in place. Hot tea and coffee with French fries was given once we reached the camp site. Dinner was freshly prepared veg food including parotha, rice, Dal, cauliflower and pasta with sweets. Next day early morning we were supposed to start at 0330 for the trek Nag tibba but due to heavy rain we could not. The tents and the sleeping bags were clean and hygienic and withstood the heavy rain with no leakage. Finally we went for a short trek for an hour after having breakfast. Breakfast was also very nice with hot bread, jam, butter, poha, cornflakes and tea/coffee. After the short trek we returned back to camp site and had lunch comprising rice and Rajma. The trek down hill was not very taxing but in the end the knees were paining as the rain water made the rocks slippery. We changed our clothes at pantwari and a room was provided for changing. The tempo traveler took us back to dehradun. The time taken is as follows Dehradun to pantwari by bus 4hrs Pantwari to campsite 3hrs Campsite to Nag tibba top and back 6-7 hours Campsite to pantwari village 2hrs Pantwari to dehradun 4hrs We had two children of 8years and both could comfortably climb up with their backpack.

If you are looking for a short and wonderful trek, Nagtibba trek is the one for you. It was easy for me to book this trek with Thrillophhilia and all the 3 days of the trek was really wonderful. Including the other group members, the trek guides and instructors were also helpful in arranging the overnight stays and other necessary stuffs for the trek. A big thanks to all the awesome members for making this trek a memorable one for me.

After all the biking trips in the Himalayas I wanted to try something different when this idea of trekking popped in my mind. Since this was my first trek, I was searching for something of easy-moderate difficulty when I came across this Nag Tibba Trek. After going through the details and reading the reviews and blogs of previous treckers I readily booked Nag tibba trek organised by Thrillophilia for 2/3 March 2019. And now i can say it was the best decision I made. Our trek leader Bachan Rana and his team were very helpful, concerned and kept motivating and inspiring us. The food served was delicious. You can't expect more in such harsh terrain. It was beyond expectations. They also gave proper guidance regarding waste and garbage management and the need to protect the environment.Though for beginners like me it was never from any angle an easy trek, but the beauty and serenity of nature and the enthusiasm to trek in snow and reach the summit kept me going.After being picked up from Dehradun, we were taken to Pantwari village from where we started the trek. Though its quite steep in the beginning, soon we got acclimatised. We were served lunch in between and after 5-6 hours of trek, we reached our base camp. There we were served with Tea, snacks, soup and dinner later that night. All the hard work paid off as soon we began our trek in the early morning of the 2nd day as the path was covered with white, glistening snow. As we kept moving the snow cover kept getting thicker. It was such a delightful experience. We reached the summit by 11 am. To our surprise, our trek leader carried sandwiches for us which was served to us at the summit. Hats Off for that. After spending some quality time at the summit, we started descending back to base camp, where we had our lunch. After it, we descended further to Pantwari from where we were transported back to Dehradun bringing an end to the adventurous trek and many memories for lifetime.

This was a great trek. My friend and I went on this trek 3 months back. It was the perfect time to go on trek in this area. The beauty of this trek is the clear and steep trek trails that are both fun as well as tough. I had a really great trek here. The trek as it is tough will leave one exhausted. A lot of warm-ups before hand helps. Also, there are experienced trekkers who accompany us, yet if you need to fully enjoy the fun aspect of the trip, it is better if you get to be strong and fit enough to handle the climate as well as the path.
