The trail to Bhatwadi village
The summit day for Nag Tibba is a long one. Right after you touch the summit, you start descending down to a village called Bhatwadi. This rout is extremely picturesque. An hour into your descent, you enter a clearing called Moriana where they is a steram on one side and you see a couple of shepherd's huts on the other side. This place is encircled by forests. It is a lovely spot for taking photographs! From here, the trail goes through a lovely forest cover that moves along the stream. When you enter farms after an hour or so, you are disappointed by the end of this trail. The trail through the woods to Nag Tibba

I went to the superb trek with my friends organized by Semwal Soldier camping and Trekking . An extremely professional trek team who took care of every aspect of our trek. Delicious food on campsite, cosy & clean camping gear plus helpful & well mannered trek staff made our Uttrakhand trip worthy. A big thanks to team Semwal Trekking !
We had an awesome hike in the mountains. The guide was so kind and told us many things about the trail and all the surroundings. Even if he did the trail so many times, he was still behaving like seeing it the first time. Thats why he gave us time to have a look at everything and never stressed us. He had a big knowledge and answered all of our questions.
