Trial of Nag Tibba

The primary task, if any, lies on the day of the summit because the path after the Nag Mandir Campsite is steep or even engulfed during the winter season. This section does raise the bar for beginners who are new to Himalayan trekking. As they have to experience hiking over ankle-deep snow through dense Oak forests on the second day of the trek.
Do you know during the peak winter season, the snow can even run knee-deep in some sections? As a result, it requires the trekker to pull through at every step. Do prepare for a similarly complicated descent from the summit. Commonly, on the treks of the Himalayas, the descent takes approximately half of the time that of ascent to any point.
