Overview

Ruby Valley Trek is the ultimate trekking to the unique land of multiethnic people of Nepal. It’s nestled on the lap of beautiful Himalayas and nature. The journey is rich in its trail too as the trekkers can experience the diversity of the four different districts of Nepal. Bharal Adventure Pvt. Ltd. is always working towards achieving the sustainable tourism in Nepal. Therefore we present to our valued trekkers and clients this new trekking trail of Nepal.

The journey of the spectacular Ruby Valley Trek starts from the Syaprubeshi of the Rasuwa district of Nepal passing by the Trishuli which is in Nuwakot district. The trail then follows the Tamang Heritage Trek Trail towards the village of Gatlang. This trekking trail is actually located between the Langtang region and Manaslu region. Therefore the influence of the Langtang National Park and Manaslu Conservation Area is huge in these parts of the region. The glorious crossing of the Pangsang Pass takes you to the Tamang ethnic village of Tipling in the Dhading district of Nepal. The gorgeous view of the mountains, hilly terrains, waterfalls, forests and rivers will make your journey quite remarkable. The natural hot water springs is another highlight of this trekking. You can relax and rest in the calcium and phosphorous rich water for the revitalization of the skin, muscles, and soul too.

Trekkers can enjoy the fishing or the celebration of the local festivals in the community as well if the calendar has the festivals during your trekking. The villages like Shertung, Dharkha, and Kintang can be reached during this trekking. Bharal Adventure Pvt. Ltd. will be more than happy to take the trekkers towards its village. The trekking crew of the trekking agency is from the Dhading district. Therefore, before departing to Kathmandu you can stay on the houses of Bharal Adventure’s staff houses. Book the newly opened yet vibrant trekking trail package of Nepal. Ruby Valley Trek in the Ganesh Himal Region will be the best off the beaten trekking activity for you.
