  1. Day 1 Dehradun to Pantwari and trek to Khatian

    Elevation – (Pantwari) 1414 m; (Khatian) 2325 m

    Distance – (Drive) 85 km; (Trek) 4.5 km

    Time Taken – (Drive) 4 hours; (Trek) 4/5 hours

    The vehicles are arranged from Dehradun Railway Station and the journey starts from there. Cover 85 km’s by going through some fable tourist attraction like Mussoorie and Kempty Fall by following the route through Nainbagh towards Nag Tibba road.

    Three routes lead to Nag Tibba but the route via Pantwari village is the shortest one. Reach mini market, enter the welcome gate and start trekking on the cemented trail. 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.

    Reach there, have sumptuous food and retire for the night.

  2. Day 2 Khatian to Nag Tibba Summit via Nag Tibba Base Camp and return to Pantwari; Drive to Dehradun

    Elevation – (Nag Tibba Base Camp) 2600 m (Nag Tibba Summit) 3022 m

    Distance – (Steep Ascent) 3 km (Descent) 8 km

    Time Taken – (Ascent) 2/3 hours (Descent) 4/5 hours

    Today wake up early because the distance is long, have light breakfast and get ready for the adventure. Go through the dense forested area, in winters trekking here gets tough because the heavy snow makes the trail hard to identify.

    Between your gradual walk cross some steep ascents and in 1 hour you can reach the Nag Tibba Base Camp. It is a wide clearing and a temple is located there dedicated to Serpent God “Nag Devta”. 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.

    Now, the climb to Nag Tibba top is 1.5 km from Base Camp which is very steep through the thick forest cover. The snow makes the climb challenging in winters. The trail is straight and you can reach the summit in 1 or 1 and a half hour depending upon the conditions.

    The highest point is called Nag Tibba, there is a flag “Jhandi” on the top. Get tremendous views of high Himalayan ranges i.e. Swargarohini, Bandar pooch, Srikanta, Kala Naag, Gangotri and snow peaks of Changabang. On the other side of ridge the route to Devalsari village is also visible.

    Spend good time there and start the steep downhill trek by following the same route to reach Pantwari. Then, depart to Dehradun via Kempty fall and Mussoorie.
