You see the Kedarnath peak, the Doon valley, and the snow peaks of Changabang in the north too. This walk of the weekend is one of the best with views and an ascent to get you to earn it.
You also experience a variety of landscapes on one side of the mountain and on the other. You walk through dense forests, clearings, and ridge. In two days’ time!
This relatively unknown trail close to Mussoorie is ideal for walkers who want to have a weekend adventure in Delhi and in the National Capital Region. This trek is great for beginners to take an introduction to the trekking world.
View of the campground sunset
This is one of the few walks we have to watch fantastic sunsets. That’s why this path looks like this one. On a clear day, you can see great mountains covered by the sky, such as Swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Kalanag, Srikanth, and Gangotri illuminated by fiery orange shade. Under you, there’s a floating bed of clouds. In order to see this sunset, you needn’t even climb to a height. From your campsite, you can see it right!
The trail to Bhatwadi village
Nag Tibba’s summit day is a long day. You start to descend to a village called Bhatwadi immediately after you reach the summit. This is a picturesque route. You enter a clearing called “Moriana” for an hour, where on one side there is a stream and on the other side you can see a few shepherd’s huts. The forests surround this place.
The path passes through a pretty forest cover from here, which runs along the river. You are disillusioned that a beautiful trail comes to an end when you enter farms after an hour or so.
