Overview

You decide the starting point of your trip - Dehradun or Mussoorie, but the trek begins in Pantwari village. 4,640 feet above the sea level in Uttarakhand’s Tehri Garhwal district, Pantwari is around 90 kms and 60 kms away from Dehradun and Mussoorie, respectively. Soon after you start trekking, the trail enters a grove of oaks and rhododendrons. While you get to experience the splendid lush greenery and blossoms during the summers, winters greet you with snow layers that accompany you throughout the journey. Overnight camping at the feet of the enormous mountains provides an expansive view of the great Himalayas. The sound of the heavy breeze and the clear sky of a starry night ensure you have a memorable experience. The trek continues to Nag Tibba top.
