Every person in this modern world is trying to get away from the stress and anxiety that almost everyone suffers and to overcome these sufferings they have devised some adventure activities with the help of which they can find peace and relaxation. Trekking is one of the most popular and trending adventure activities that most people prefer for getting closer to nature and spending some time off this materialistic world.
Today I am going to tell you everything that you need to know about one of the most renowned treks of northern India i.e. The Nag Tibba trek.
Mountains are the most popular travel destination when looking to get away from everyday life and find refuge in the beauty of nature. Nag Tibba shows to be an enticing and most suitable weekend hiking spot in order to obtain such tranquillity. The first word in the name of this journey, “Nagg,” means “snake,” and the second word, “Tibba,” means “high or peak” in the native Garhwali language.
With this trek, you get to explore a range of landscapes, including walking through deep forests, next to clearings and lakes, and along ridge walks, as well as ascending one side of the mountain and descending from another. Given that it is the most convenient trip from Delhi and Dehradun, it is one of the greatest weekend hikes to complete. This hike is renowned for its breathtaking sunsets. Given that it takes four days to complete, it is a fantastic option for those who work in offices and only have a limited amount of free time. The walk is particularly enjoyable because snow will be there on the first day.
Although the Nag Tibba journey may be completed at any time of year, the winter, when the trail is completely covered in snow, is the ideal time to do the walk.
Summer indicates that the weather will be considerably more favourable for trekking and that the vistas will be beautiful. You can enjoy a constant cold wind to keep you comfortable during the summer months of April to June. You may rest close to natural water sources, and the deep forest cover offers enough shade.
Even though monsoon may not seem like a wonderful time to go trekking, the area actually comes to life during this time. Astonishing vistas of the Doon valley will be yours to enjoy. From July through October, during the monsoon season, you may enjoy the lush foliage and mesmerising panoramas. In a tiny hut, you may enjoy your coffee while watching a downpour. You will need to exercise extreme caution and bring high-quality hiking gear, footwear, and equipment because the monsoon season will greet you with muddy and slippery trails.
Out of the full year, October to March is the greatest time to visit Nag Tibba. The peace and beautiful snowfall in this valley make it well worth the cost. Even if it gets quite cold and snowy during the winter, Nag Tibba’s wintertime solitude and tranquillity are worth it. The necessity of carrying bulky wool clothes arises.
The Jolly Grant Airport, located 60 kilometres from Mussoorie, is the closest airport to the hill station. Despite being located at a high elevation, this airport has good access to metal-paved roads. Taxis are conveniently accessible from the airport to Mussoorie as well.
Dehradun Railway Station, 36 kilometres away from Mussoorie, is the closest. Even though there are only two trains that travel from Delhi to Dehradun and back on a daily basis, each one has a set departure schedule. Dehradun Railway Station is 36 kilometres away from Mussoorie.
Motorable highways that are adequately constructed and maintained offer excellent access to Mussoorie. Buses for Mussoorie can be seen in both luxury and regular buses from ISBT Kashmiri Gate in Delhi.

Above was the information that is needed if you plan to trek in nag Tibba. I would definitely recommend this trek to you and can assure you that you will not regret your decision.
