Ganesh and Ruby Valley Trek

Ganesh and Ruby Valley Trek

Overview

This is a relatively short trek but one that really puts you into the remote and wild Himalayan wilderness without going to a too higher altitude. The trek begins from the Manaslu Circuit and then follows the lower valleys to the south of Ganesh eventually linking up to the Langtang region. Although not a high altitude trek the trails are difficult to follow linking up the small and remote communities.
