Ruby Valley Camping Trek

Trip Code: RBT

20 Days

View of Ganesh Himal on the way to Ruby Valley

Ruby valley Trek is a newly explored trekking route that passes through Dhading, Gorkha, Rasuwa and Nuwakot districts of Nepal. This trek is named after the precious Ruby stone as this hidden valley is considered to be Ruby stone mine sites. The trek offers a unique experience of mountain, culture and natural biodiversity of the remote areas. The highest altitude of Ruby valley trek is Ganesh Base Camp (3250m) . During the trekking journey, one can visit Black and White (Kalo-seto kunda) lakes originated  in a melted glacier. Crossing Sing La pass (4040m) and catching hold of  a panorama view of the Himalayas is a lifetime  experience one can’t  miss.  During the trek one can see Mt. Ganesh I, Ganesh II (7118m), Lapsang Karbo (7043m), Pabil (7,104m), Mt. Manaslu and Langtang, in a clear weather condition.

Ruby valley Trekking can be organized in different durations depending on starting and ending point. It  is mainly  full board camping trek but home-stays can also be arranged. Very few  trekkers have visited this off-the-beaten track. We will walk through the various settlements populated mainly by Tamang Gurung and Ghale to the north, and, Chhetri, Bramhin, Newar, Dalit  and Chepang at the lower altitude  to the south. However, Tamang who are Buddhists form the majority settlers. Many Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples can be visited during this trek.
As the trekking route encompasses both Langtang National Park and Manaslu Conservation Area, this area is home to rich biodiversity. Every spring especially March,April and May  the hillsides and forests are covered  with various species of rhododendron flowers, pines, oaks and may herbaceous plants. The landscape is dotted with rivers, streams, waterfalls, and lakes.

Trip Highlights

The Ganesh Himal area has some excellent viewpoints that offer magnificent views of peaks and valleys. Most rewarding are the magnificent Ganga Jamuna -- twin waterfalls -- Kalo, Seto and Ganesh kunda, hot spring and Tripurasundari temple and especially the hospitable people that inhabit the region.
