Ruby Valley Trekking route
The Ruby Valley Trekking can start either from the beautiful village Syabrubesi or Dhading Bensi. Then, the trail moves into Dharkha Bensi and to Disang Khola via a village full of Tamang and Brahmin populations residing in perfect harmony with each other. Then the trail ascends the Gurung village of Chalishe through Borang village and Gopre Gaun. The natural soothing hot springs саn visit to soothe the aching muscles and send away the pain. An ascend, further upwards through Aada Khola, and Tippling village brings the Laptung village. Finally, reach the Pang sang Pass.
Similarly, if the Ruby valley trek starts from Syabru Bensi, the trail goes anti-clockwise along the same path. Pang sang La located at the height of 3850 m requires some acclimatization to reduce the risks of altitude sickness. The impressive views of the Ganesh Himal, Ganja – La, Langtang, Paldor, Manaslu and Annapurna ranges provide an everlasting impact. Then descends to the village of Somdang and Ghatlang via Khurpu Danda pass. From Ghatlang, a trek finally concludes to Syabru Bensi via Bahun Danda, accompanied by the views of Langtang Lirung, Gosainkunda ridge, and the pristine Tibetan Peaks beyond it. It brings an end to this incredible trekking.
Along the route, various species such as the Himalayan Thar, red pandas, barking deer, bear, snow leopard, wolf, tiger, pheasants, monkeys, musk deer can observe. The Ganesh Himal Langtang trek is the destination for Ruby Mines, hence the valley surrounding it is known as the Ruby Valley.
