From Tree of Life Mussoorie, one can enjoy a thrilling weekend summit.
We’ve all heard that summits are a great way to end a trek. Treks like Deoriatal – Chandrashila and Kedarkantha are popular because of this. There is nothing like the rush of a summit climb on a trail like Nag Tibba, where you can experience it in just a few days.
On the Nag Tibba range of Garhwal Himalayas, this trek’s summit stands at 9,915 ft above sea level. Swargrohini, Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Srikantha, and Gangotri are all visible from this vantage point. Additionally, you can see the Kedarnath peak in the north, Doon Valley, and Changabang’s snow peaks. This weekend hike may be one of the best because of the spectacular views and the challenging ascent.
As you travel up and down the mountain, you’ll see a variety of scenery along the way. This trek takes you through thick forests, open areas, and a ridge walk. Isn’t that incredible?
For trekkers in Delhi and the National Capital Region who are looking for a weekend adventure, this trail near Mussoorie is a great option. This trek is a great introduction to the world of trekking for novices.
What to Keep an Eye on

If you’re looking for a spectacular sunset, this is one of the few treks we offer. This is due to the trail’s orientation. Mountain ranges like Swargarohini and Bandarpoonch light up in a fiery orange on a clear day, as do Kalanag and Srikanth in Uttarakhand. You look down and see a sea of clouds swaying in the sky. To see this sunset, you don’t even need to get out of your car and hike up a hill. It’s right in front of you at your campsite!
If your group’s fitness, weather conditions, and snowfall are favourable, your Trek Leader will make the final decision on whether or not to descend from Bhatwadi or retrace the route back.
Nag Tibba’s summit day is a long one, but it’s worth it. As soon as you reach the top, you begin your descent to a village called Bhatwadi. You won’t be disappointed with the scenery along this route. The clearing of Moriana, where a stream flows on one side and a few shepherds’ huts can be seen on the other, is reached an hour into your descent. This area is completely encircled by lush greenery. It’s a great location for taking pictures!
From here, the trail continues along the streamside in a lovely forest. The beautiful trail comes to an end after an hour or so when you enter the farmland.
