TRIP INTRODUCTION

Ruby Valley Ganesh Himal Trek is one of the most beautiful trekking routes in Nepal. This route is new and visited by a small number of trekkers. This trek covers parts of the Langtang National Park and the Annapurna Conservation Area.

Ruby valley trek provides majestic view of peaks in the Central and Western part of Nepal. Peaks on sight include the Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, Bouddha, Hiuchuli and Lakpa Dorje. The trek provides an experience of living with the wonderful Tamang and Gurung people of Nepal. The region, being less frequented by tourists, does not have many hotels and guest houses. Homestay is the only option for most part of the tour. The Tamangs and Gurungs have a rich and unique culture. Their hospitality is impeccable.

Ganesh is the elephant headed god of the Hindus. He is the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. The mountain is named after him. The region surrounding Ganesh Himal is famous for its Ruby, Zinc, Limestone, Granite and Copper deposits. It is believed that Sherthung, a place that lies on our trail, possesses gold deposits.

These forests are home to over 500 species of plants, 300 species of birds and hundreds of species of wild animals. Places settled by humans is characterized by beautiful terraced farms.
