Archan Nambeesan Nagtibba Trek
Excellent
What an experience it was. we came across a lot of greenery items in between that was looking cool but were poisonous. The trail was marked and guide was with us so the whole experience was like exploring any known world. Snaps we took at the peak was great, behind us was a cloudy view, making the photographs awesome.
The view of the mountain from the telescope was really beautiful. We visited there last November and the trail was covered with snow. Do go with a guide only otherwise you can lose your way up there. The morning views were really astonishing and we loved the visit to the church as well. Thrillophilia conducts this trek nicely and enjoyed trekking with them.
One of the challenging trek I took part so far but I'm so thankful to our guide who was there with us all the time and help us with the walked when we reach the steeps or terrain, the guide was friendly always keep the group together, answer all the questions and fulfilled our request, the porter was friendly and the entire staff too, nice-accommodation, good foods, everything was well-organized and well-managed... It was hard but worth every single minute.
Village Camping experience was a very good idea. had an amazing time at the campsite.it was Perfect Mixture of Camping and Offbeat, bornfire was also there, and the best part was Panoramic View Of Nature Around us. Thanks to Thrillophilia.
Experience overall was good. But since this is a covid situation we had local porters who were quite new to the trek and were reaching the campsite almost in our pace. Because of this the food we got was getting a bit delayed and lot of times we were starving after the long day of trek. But trek leader was good and he took care of everything in case of any problems.
We had a great trekking experience with Thrillophilia. The guide was informative and friendly and we really enjoyed learning about the Lal Tibba Trek. The lush green trails were worth seeing and the mountain view was just breathtaking.
A highly recommended trekking experience in Mussoorie with Thrillophilia. The trek is a circular one so it has so many views to cover and the highlight of our trekking was to speak to the locals and hear about the tales of the temple and stories of the guide. We are so happy that we went there and had a great time.
As a beginner, it is one of the best first trekking experiences we had at Nag Tibba Trekking. The adoring beauty this trek offers is simply marvellous.
Going for this trek in the months of winter was really exciting. Snows make it a bit moderate but the views are awe-inspiring. We didn’t see anything that beautiful during our entire trip.
