Nag Tibba Trek - Prologue

This March I spent a week at Nag Tibba. Often camping and staying with Gaddis or goatherds that flock to its slopes, seeking fodder for their livestock. Gaddis have wandered the Himalaya for generations and no-one understands the topography and geography better than these nomadic people. Living with these shepherds, I discovered that there is more to Nag Tibba than meets the eye at first glance or what a fixed schedule trekking tour would have you believe.
