"Step into the hidden jewel of Nepal: Ruby Valley Trek."

The Ruby Valley Trek is a hidden treasure in the Ganesh Himal Region, nestled between Langtang National Park and the Manaslu Conservation Area. It's named after the abundant red rubies found here, with the highest point being Pangsang Pass at 3850m.

This region remains largely undiscovered by most Nepal visitors, offering stunning views of the Ganesh Himal Range along the way. You'll also encounter Ganga Jamuna, the twin waterfalls, as well as the charming villages of Kalo, Seto, and Ganesh Kunda, hot springs, and unique landscapes teeming with diverse flora and fauna.

Furthermore, this journey provides cultural immersion as you pass through villages with rich traditions. In the northern areas, you'll encounter Tamang, Gurung, and Ghale communities, while in the south, the predominant groups include Brahmin, Chhetri, Newar, Chepang, and Dalits.
