Little ahead is a small temple of Nag Devta. Now, after 5 minutes of hike the trail changes to a rocky one full of loose rocks.

    As you go higher the Pantwari village and the farmlands are visible below. The connecting Nag Tibba ridge lies in front. Climb the hill and reach a water point, the water here is safe to drink. Continue trekking and great views which the trail offers are feast for the eyes.

    Now, enter the “Pravesh Dwar”; “Welcome Gate” of Nag Tibba and start ascending through the forest section. Rhododendrons (Burans) are found in abundance here and its squash is very famous because it is very helpful in treating blood pressure.

    The zig zag trail is steep with many loose rocks. There are many other short cuts which look alike and lead to same place, but do not go for these shortcuts and leave the group because there is a chance to get lost in the woods. After a 15 minutes hike reach a small clearing and from here you can spot your campsite.

It is worshipped by the local villagers for protection of their cattle and a “Bhagwat” is held here in which “Chief Minister is invited and almost 10,000 people attend it every year.
