Weather Details

This trek is organized in winters between end Dec & Mar when the region has had good snowfall. Contrary to popular belief, winters are a good time to be in the mountains if one is equipped properly. Most locals inhabiting higher reaches of the mountains don’t mind the problems associated with snowfall and seem to have a good time during these months. Also there are lots of local festivals in these months. In these months weather is generally clear most of the days. Day time is pleasantly warm with one getting to enjoy sitting out in the sun and temperatures would be around 12-17 °C. Evenings are quite cold and one would need to be inside a tent/room or sitting outside next to fire with proper winter clothes. The evening temperatures will be around 0 to 5 °C. Nights can be very cold with temperatures in the range of -5 to 0 °C.

Please keep in mind that the above information is not exact and does not account for sudden changes. Whatever the temperatures and conditions rest assured we will be prepared to handle it with ease as we use equipment of very high specifications.

List of Essentials

It is very important for this adventure trip that you need to be equipped properly and with a bit of back up. Mountain/adventure travel requires one to be adequately equipped with the right kind of personal gear.

Description

This is a probably the finest weekend trek around Delhi and NCR if you want to experience snow and sub zero temperatures. The camping experience in the snow and walking up to the top of this mountain are the main attraction of this venture. There are beautiful meadows and thick jungles along the trail offering numerous scenic camping locations.
The climbing gradient while going up is moderate with a few steep patches in between making this trek suitable for all including enterprising and moderately adventurous families. At Nagtibba top you will have the whole place covered in thick sheet of snow, just for yourself with just an odd Gujjar/shepherd sharing the magnificent views with you. The panorama of the Himalayan snow peaks of Garhwal and Himachal region is sure to keep you busy with the camera. Some of the famous peaks that are visible from here include the Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Srikanth and Black peak.
