Ruby Valley Trek Introduction

An unexplored beauty among the Himalayas, Ruby Valley Trek provides scenic elegance and cultural and traditional virtue. Lying between Langtang National Park and Manaslu Conservation Area, this is marvelous with its landscape. Buddhist monasteries, Hindu temples, and the snow-capped mountains are the fantastic opportunity this trail offers you.

The beauty of the course with a glimpse of the tremendous Annapurna range, and Langtang range makes this trail excellent for travelers through one of the most distinct views of the Himalayas. It is the least explored hidden trekking trail situated in the Ganesh Himal region of Nepal.

The Ganesh Himal region has deposited a gem named ruby, so it forms its name. It has deposited minerals within it, the precious red stone. The trekking trail takes 12days that makes you travel through the villages of Gurung and Tamang settlements, a unique ethnic group known for their unique culture and rich traditions.

The Ruby Valley Trek trail features a variety of terrain, including terraced farms, gradual and steep climbs, and breathtaking scenery of lush green forest and high snow-capped mountains.
