Trip Introduction

Ruby Valley Pangsang Pass

Ruby Valley Trek lies in the Langtang National Park and touches Manaslu Conservation Area. We can see the mesmerizing mountain views of Ganesh Himal I (7429 m.) and II (7118 m.) III (7110 m) Manaslu (8163 m.) along with the Himalayan valley trek. We also explore many other small mountains. Trekking in Nepal is the mysterious tramping in the excellent Himalayan environment orchestrated by the expert guidance of the trek. The organizer passed by the multi-ethnic people’s culture and traditions.

This Ruby Valley Trek lies between the Langtang National Park and Manaslu Conservation Area. Most of the crew members of Peregrine Treks are from this trekking region. So, they are beneficial for the trekkers to know about this region’s unique terrain and culture.

We can divide it into two parts for this trekking: panoramic views of the Ganesh Himal and Manaslu ranges. We also observe the twin cascades of Ganga & Jamuna and the peculiar lifestyle of the Tamang, Gurung, and other ethnic tribes.

The Ruby Valley Trekking begins from Syaprubeshi of Rasuwa district after a driver takes you to the place from Kathmandu. The trek revolves around Nepal’s Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Dhading, and Kathmandu districts. The best time for trekking in Ruby Valley is during March & April because the forests look red-painted with the blossoming rhododendron at this point of the year.

Besides the natural attractions in this trek, the monasteries, ponds, flora, fauna, hilly farming terraced landscapes, mineral mines, birds, and endangered animals like Thar, deer, Red Pandas (rarely seen), Snow leopard, Monkeys, etc. can be observed in the region.

This restricted region of trekking offers an enchanting experience of nature and culture. Trek with the authentic local crew members hailed from the area and felt the staged authenticity with Shree Adventure Club.
