Ruby Valley Community Trek

Ruby Valley Community Trek is authentic and one of the least explored hidden trekking routes in Nepal. This region is not explored extensively and provides the experience of pristine traditional Tamang villages, their culture, and lifestyle.
The trail Ruby Valley winds through varied landscape and walking conditions as it comprises almost flatlands, terraced farms, steady and steep ascents and spectacular scenery of lush woodland and towering snow-capped peaks. The trek presents an exceptional experience of mountain, culture and natural biodiversity.
The unexplored trekking trail offers you the chance to discover some very far-flung areas in Nepal. Meanwhile, this is a very new trekking trail in Nepal, lodges, and guesthouses have not been established yet so homestay is the mode of accommodation, which lets you get a first-hand experience of Nepalese countryside life as you stay with locals and share their food
