Ganesh Himal ruby valley trek is a newly explored trekking region in Nepal and situated between popular trekking destinations of Langtang National park and Manaslu Conservation Area Project. The trek is near to both Kathmandu and Pokhara and no flight is involved.

Ganesh Himal Ruby valley - wildflowers flourish and waterfalls embellish the lush hill scenery in a land blessed with wide-ranging geographical, cultural and biological diversity. Also, the trek offers sensational viewpoints that feature the magnificent Himalayan to the north. Most prominent is the Ganesh Himal range – a family of peaks among the most attractive of the entire Himalaya. The Ganesh massif is named in honor of Hindu deity Ganesh, son of Shiva and Parvati. This region has some tremendous viewpoints that offer breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks and valleys including Ganesh Parbat and ruby valley. The most rewarding is the magnificent Ganga Jamuna (twin waterfalls), Ganesh Kunda, hot spring, holy Tripurasundari temple and especially the friendly and hospitable people that inhabit the region.

The Ganesh Himal ruby valley trek lies in the four very famous districts of Nepal including Dhading, Gorkha, Rasuwa, and Nuwakot. The whole area is populated mainly by Gurung, Tamang, and Gale to the north and Chetri, Bhramins, Dalit, Newar and Chepang at the lower elevations in the south. Trekkers are warmly welcomed by the villagers with a friendliness that makes Nepal legendary. This region has many amazing trekking itineraries, as per your request we would love to design a selective one to you according to your interested and time frame.
