A brief day walk in Mussoorie Wildlife Sanctuary, Benog, is called the Benog Tibba Trek. The 1993-founded sanctuary is where you can find Mountain Quails, which are almost extinct.
The Cloud End Forest Retreat is where the trek begins. You are in the wilds from the very beginning. This walk is ideal for novices because it takes place through verdant, green forests and features entrancing bird sounds. You won’t feel the sun for a considerable amount of time because of the dense tree cover. These conditions prevent the onset of trail fatigue that might otherwise occur.
The Yamuna valley below, with a few isolated villages and their fields dotting the hills, can be seen to the west as the trail emerges from the forest. This path stretches and blooms with flowers in the spring, almost covering the grass!
And to the east, the Greater Himalayan range, which includes the mountains Kalanag, Swargarohini, Gangotri I, II, and III, Bhrigupanth, and Kedarnath, opens up in a vast vista.
How difficult is Benog Tibba Trek?
The Benog Tibba trek is an easy-moderate trek. Though it’s an easy trek there are certain things that you must be aware of. The trek is short but it can get sunny as you walk up the steep slope. Dehydration is really common if you don’t have enough fluids to hydrate yourself.
