Famously called the ‘Mountain of the Serpent’, the Nag Tibba trek starts north east of Mussoorie, at the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan ranges, at an altitude of 3,048 meters. The local people have been offering prayers (puja) to the Snake God (Nag Devta) at this peak which is testament to its sanctity. They believe that the Snake God protects their cattle from snake bites.
