The Ruby Valley is a true gem of a trek hidden away in the Ganesh Himal Region wedged between Langtang National Park and the Manaslu Conservation Area. It is named so due to the rich deposits of precious red rubies in the region. The highest altitude on this trek is the Pangsang Pass (3850m).
This region is mostly unknown to most visitors coming to Nepal. Along the trails, there are a number of exquisite views of the Ganesh Himal Range. We will also see Ganga Jamuna (the twin waterfalls) and Kalo, Seto, and Ganesh Kunda villages, hot springs and incredible geography with its unique flora and fauna.
This is also a cultural journey through villages rich in traditions of the various castes, with Tamang, Gurung and Ghale in the north and predominantly Brahmin, Chhetri, Newar, Chepang, and Dalits in the south.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find net and clean teahouses - You will be staying at a teahouse/tent in higher elevation.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Ruby valley regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
