The summit of Nag Tibba range is 9910 ft, high in the of Garhwal Himalayas. From here, you see a 100-degree view of snow-capped Himalayan ranges such as Swargrohini, Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Srikantha, and Gangotri. You also see Kedarnath peak in the north, Doon valley and the snow peaks of Changabang. With views like this and a climb to make you earn them, this weekend trek may be one of the best. This is one of the few treks we have where you can see spell binding sunsets. This is because of the direction this trail faces. On a clear day, you see big snow-capped mountains like Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Kalanag, Srikanth, and Gangotri lighting up a shade of fiery orange. Below you, you see a bed of clouds float. You don’t even have to climb to a high point to see this sunset. You can see it right from your campsite!
First day of the journey towards Panthwari will take 2-3 hours from Dehradun railway station. The way will take you via Mussoorie, Kempty Fall, over Yamuna Bridge upto Nainbhagh on the road to Purola.The first step would be to reach Panthwari. It is a small and beautiful place in the Nag Tibba valley. After reaching Pantwari, we walk towards the campsite.
The path has different things to look out for including the Nag Devta Temple, shepherds’ huts and the goat hamlet which is quite famous locally for the varieties of goats and sheeps which are nourished by the villagers.After an hour of steep zig-zag climbing, we will gain enough altitude to have a clear view of the Panthwari village.

We enjoy the view of the peak and then trek back to the village from where we would be drive back to Dehradun.
