This may seem slightly difficult, but once you get the hang of it and we will make sure that you do, this is something you might find yourself doing often on other holidays. Enjoy the day, before settling around the bonfire towards the night. The evening ends in stories of the many hits and misses while rock climbing, but all of them end in an ‘experience of a lifetime
This trip is all about connecting with the outdoors! Orienteering, hike to Chaurani and nature walk with picnic lunch. From the camp we start the trek to Chaurani, the trail goes through a small place called Viraatkhai, towards the north you can view soaring Himalayan ranges like Black peak, and Swargarohini. Viraatkhai is a small market place for local people with many tea stalls. From Viraatkhai after viewing the magnificent views we walk for another 1 km on the Mussoorie Chakrata trail. The trail continues through oak and rhododendron forest. Here is an opportunity to spot Babbler, Blue Whistling thrush, Magpie, Robbin, Tree pie, Woodpecker, etc. From here the hike is a gradual uphill. In about 15 – 20 mins, we reach the second ridge, where we stop for a short break. From here, you can see the Jaunsar region. There are several houses called Channi here which is used as a shelter for cattle’s. Further on, the trail weaves through rich forest of Deodar and Blue pine. After walking for 45 mins you reach Chaurani. Chaurani is a ridge. Witness the Great Himalayan ranges towards the north and down south Doon Valley. Over here we have a fun filled picnic lunch. After having lunch, you can choose to walk down or drive down to the lodge.
Today we drive to Chakrata town 25 kms and hike down to see the famous Tiger Falls. The hike is mostly downhill and fairly easy and you will be surprised how much the kids will enjoy it. En route, your guide tells you all about local life in the hills; the tribal’s of the region and help explore the fauna on the way. This region is home to the Jaunsar-Bawar tribes. If someone does not want to hike, the falls are also accessible by a car with only a short walk of 30 mins.
The day starts at Pantwari village, which lies in the upper fringes of Mussoorie, a 2 hour drive from the lodge. This is the base point for the Nagtibba trek. Our trip leader, an experienced outdoor professional meets you here to take you through some orientation about the region and what to expect over the next few days. The climb to Nagtibba base is mild enough for kids to enjoy as well and lasts only 2 hrs at an easy pace. If you would like to have a backup, we could arrange for a horse to accompany us and anyone could take a horse ride whenever they are too tired to walk. However, we don’t reach the peak, but a base below that. Between this, the expert also tells you more about this history associated with this region, about the locals in the villages and the local flora that you see along the way. With stories from the hills, you hardly notice the distance to the campsite, in the middle of a large lush green meadow. Our outdoor camping expert introduces you to the world of camping. The day ends around the bonfire. Overnight in tents.
After enjoying the views of a misty hill morning, we climb to the top of the Nagtibba peak. Today, our expert gives you tips on using the compass and other ways of navigating on a trek – a skill that will go a long way in future. Post the lunch, we walk back to the campsite. En route, our naturalist tells you more about the flora and fauna, pointing out the change from the lower regions to the higher parts of the mountains. Back at the campsite, the recreation team will have games organised for children – with the crisp mountain air, you will be surprised at the stamina for participating despite the trek in the morning. We settle into the camps at night, the tents lit up by the bonfire. Overnight in tents.
