The Ruby Valley Ganesh Himal trek is one of the best kept trekking secrets in central Nepal! On this hidden valley trail, splendid views can be seen from 3,850 meters from Pangsang pass. This trek also offers an authentic experience of several ethnicities of the region including Tamang, Ghale, Gurung and Kami. Experience the villages, the beautiful farm terraces and the everyday lives of the Nepali people in the hills of the Himalayas.

The trek starts after driving from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. It passes through foothills and lowland farm terraces to ethnic Tamang villages at higher altitudes like Gatlang, which used to be on the ancient salt trade route between China and Nepal. Along the trail, the trek offers splendid close-up views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang, BouddhaHimal, Hiunchuli and other peaks of the central Himalayas. The highest altitude on this trek is the Pangsang pass at 3850m and it is one of the finest viewpoints on the trek.

The Ruby Valley Ganesh Himal trek is a homestay trek, meaning you will get an opportunity to interact with and support the local people. Homestays also allow guests to discover villages, ethnic groups, distinct cultures, languages, and lifestyles. Your homestay and trek will also help with the economic growth of the area. Homestay treks are also comparatively less expensive, making it a more affordable option for many people.

Trekking always demands a spirit of adventure, following narrow winding paths to summit passes and mountains. For the extra adventurous there are also passes, lakes, mountains and peak climbing.

Nepali village life and culture
Gabi At

“if you look for a trip in Nepal away from the main Trails and where you experence local life as it is than you should go to the Ruby valley. The home stays and lodges are simple but clean. Food is excellent organic and fresh, prepared with care and love. People in the village are curious to get you known and to talk to you. You will pass through fields, villages and forests. The Trail does you not lead very close to the snow mountains of the Himalaya range but close to the life in the village. And if you lucky you are able to find some ruby or gold in the river.”
Amazing cultural experience trekking

“The Ruby Valley is one of the least visited trekkings I have done so far. No surprise that we were very warm welcomed in every village and took part of the local life including simple but clean homestays and delicious, freshly cooked nepaly meals. Thanks to our 2 guides Pemba Sherpa and Saujan Tamang (from the Ruby Valley) who did a great job and we had a great time. A big thanks two our Nepali friends. We can only recomend both of them to anyone wishing to book a trekking in Nepal. Sandra”
One of my dreams come true:-)))
