Ruby Valley Trekking

Ruby valley trek is a recent trekking trail in Ganesh Himal region of central Nepal in between the Manaslu Conservation Area and Langtang National Park. This unexplored valley is inhabited by Tamang, Gurung and Ghale to the north and Brahmin, Chhetri, Dalit, Chepang to the south in the lower elevations thus providing diverse culture, tradition and way of life. Different species of flora and fauna, waterfalls in the lush green hills with diverse geographical, cultural and biological diversity are some major features of this trek. Ruby valley trek gives you the stunning panorama of magnificent Himalayan view of Ganesh massif, Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, Langtang and other peaks along with the magnificent Ganga Jamuna –twin waterfalls, Kalo, Seto lakes and Ganesh Kunda. This region is famous for valuable ruby stone after which the valley is named.

Different itineraries are recommended for the Ruby Valley Trek as per the trekker’s convenience. Usually, the trek begins after a drive from Kathmandu to Shyabru Besi. We follow a zigzag dirt track, cross Bahun Danda Pass and reach Tamang settlement of Gatlang. We go through pine and rhododendron forest to Parvati kund, Yuri Kharka and down to Somdang. From Somdang we head to Pangsang pass from where we can view beautiful villages of valley and soaring peaks of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal Range. Next, we descend to Tipling and trek to villages of Sherlung and Chalish with abundant fields. We can enjoy the Tamang culture show with at Sherlung and Gurung traditions at Chalish. They both follow Buddhist practices. Sri Tinkanlya Devi Mandir lies above Chalish. From Chalish we trek to Borang continue, crossing suspension bridges over breathtaking Ankhu Khola, to Percho, Darkha Gaun(village) and all the way down to Darkha Phedi. Then we take a local jeep and arrive is Dhading Besi from where we head back to Kathmandu.

On this journey we see Buddhist monasteries, calm ponds, stunning landscapes, different species of herbs, birds and wild animals such as Thar, Ghoral, Red panda, musk deer, monkey and many more. Since Ruby valley trek is on new & unspoiled route modern hotel facilities are not available. So, our accommodation is tent or home stay. The warm hospitability and friendly people of this region will stay on your heart forever. March to April and May are best times for this trek.
