Ruby Valley Trek encompasses the spectacular Ruby Valley, exhilarating mountain views including Ganesh Himal, Langtang Range and Himchuli and most importantly, the most authentic rural life-style of the ethnic people. Ruby Valley is located in between Langtang and Manaslu Himalayan trail offering the best experience of trekking into less beaten Himalayan region of Nepal. If you are looking forward to undertaking your holiday trek in less touristic area of Nepal, Ruby Valley Trek will be the finest choice for you. You can stay at homestays and directly get in touch with the local lifestyle and the culture. Also, trekkers will be delighted to interact with local people including Chhetris, Brahmins, Tamang, Gurung and Magar.

Ruby Valley is a part of Ganesh Himal region trekking in Nepal.

People begin this trek from different points like Syabrubesi, Darkha Besi of Dhading, Balche of Nuwakot and Arkhet or Sotikhola fo Gorkha district flowing the trail of Manaslu trek. However, we begin our Ruby Valley Trek from Darkha Besi passing via Dhading Besi, The trail, then, ascends through incredible natural falls, hot springs, holy lakes and traditional settlements of Tamang and Gurung People. On the way, we pass Chalis and Somdang village before getting to Ruby Valley. The trail to Ruby Valley and the valley itself is popular for precious minerals such as zinc, crystal and ruby. We also pass adventurous Pangsang Pass located at 3,850m. We, eventually, get into the spectacular Ruby Valley and celebrate the awaited highlights f the trek including stupendous mountain panorama.

We backtrack through Gatlang and Syabrubesi. From Syabrubesi, we take another long drive back to Kathmandu to end out Ruby Valley Trek.

However, the prior trekking experience will, definitely, help us in many ways. Spring and Autumn are the finest seasons of the year for Ruby Valley Trek. We enjoy the local organic foods items and stay at homestays during the trek.
