The mining is not significant but this whole region has high deposits of minerals, including ruby, the red precious stone. This trek of 12 days takes you to the villages of the Tamang and Gurung ethnic groups, known for their unique culture and rich traditions. This trekking trail has recently come into practice where the ethical groups of people are present and follow the ancient ethical and medicinal practices. The shaman practice is done here, which provides additional exploration and knowledge on this trip.
The trail Ruby Valley Trek has all kinds of landscape and walking conditions as it includes almost flatlands, terraced farms, gradual and steep climbs and beautiful scenery of lush green forest and high snow-capped mountains. Some of the famous mountains you can see on this trek include the Ganesh Himal, the mountain named after the elephant-headed god Ganesh, LangtangLirung, Boudha Himal, Hiunchuli Dorje Lakpa and other mountains of western and central Nepal.

This unexplored trekking trail provides you the opportunity to explore some very remote areas in Nepal, not frequented by tourists. Since this is a very new trekking trail in Nepal, lodges, and guesthouses have not been developed yet so homestay is the mode of accommodation, which allows you to get a first-hand experience of Nepali rural life as you stay with locals and share their food. The Ganesh Himal, Ruby Valley trekking in central Nepal is a lifetime experience in terms of cultural exposure and mountain views.
