Ruby Valley trek with the Ganesh Himal Base Camp


You’re looking for a trek that offers a real rural lifestyle, away from the tourists. The Ruby Valley is remote and little-known. It is one of the least-used trekking routes in Nepal, linking the Langtang and Manaslu regions. This region of Langtang is authentic.

This is the trek for you if you want a mix of culture and views of the Himalayan peaks.

The trek is at a moderate level and accessible to trekkers wishing to do their first trek in Nepal..

The price shown is “from” depending on your choice of group.



Unknown trek of the Ruby Valley and the Ganesh BC – 10D / 9N

You will discover the Ganesh Himal mountain range in the Langtang region. The Ruby Valley offers a unkrowded trek. Far from mass tourism, at the foot of the region’s high peaks.
You will hike in an authentic region of Nepal. It’s a journey to discover the beauty of the region, but also the local ethnic groups: Ghale, Gurung, Tamang and Dalit. These people are renowned for their distinct cultures and traditions, but also for their hospitality.

This hiking offers spectacular views of the Himalayas: Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Buddha Himal and other high mountains.

This is a fully supported homestay that promotes community life and encourages economic development in the valley. There are no luxury lodges here – you’ll be staying with local people. We will be staying in the villages of Borang, Chalish, Tipling, Pangsang and Somdong.

This off-the-beaten-track trek in Nepal is perhaps one of the least well-known. It has a moderate level, making it accessible to beginners and experienced trekkers.
