Woodstock School has a long tradition in day-hikes, multi-day hikes & overnight camping trips. Often, students remember these trips as “special memories” while at Woodstock.
During term time there are scheduled hikes and overnight camping trips taking place on most weekends. These range from short half day hikes to longer two to three day trips. Each trip is designed to suit the respective age-group of students across grades, from KG through to Grade 12.
A system of hiking points and awards is used to recognise students who are able to commit the most time and effort in this direction.
As an important resource, there is a library of Hike descriptions of many of the most popular and most accessible hikes. They can be viewed, downloaded and printed for convenience.

Pepperpot Cave and Deo Ki Tibba (Mountain of the God) are two destinations situated near each other that can be visited together in a short hike from Tehri Road. Deo Ki Tibba at 7690 feet is the high point of the ridge that runs eastward from Mussoorie to Suakholi.
It has a long summit ridge with the West Summit separated from the Middle Summit by a prominent notch. The East Summit has a lookout tower. The view from any of the tops is one of the best in this region since it includes both the high Himalayas to the north and northeast and Dehra Dun and the Shiwaliks to the south. Pepperpot Cave is not on Pepperpot Mountain, but it is a small, dry, natural cave that is fun for children.
