The most exceptional and pristine homestay trekking experience amidst the highest mountains
One of Nepal’s most stunning homestay hikes is the Ruby Valley Trek. Compared to other high-altitude treks in Nepal, the Ruby Valley Trek is significantly simpler and shorter.
The route to Ruby Valley includes a variety of landscapes, human cultures, and animals, in addition to the most breathtaking and up-close mountain views of the Ganesh Himal, Langtang, and Manaslu ranges.
The Rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal, and numerous other blooms, including Pines and Orchids in the background, embellish the Ruby Valley in the spring.
When the winter and summer months can be pretty tough due to the cold and rain, the summer and autumn are slightly different since they are less crowded. If you like avoiding crowds while trekking in the Himalayas, these seasons may be ideal.
The most exquisite vistas and terrain of the Himalayas can be found inside Ruby Valley, but when you visit those intriguing villages while on the tour, you’ll also learn about people of diverse ethnicities, lifestyles, and customs, notably Gurung and Tamang people. Like the famous dawn panorama over the Himalayas, practically every community in the area offers a similar zenith position.
The best seasons to go on this magnificent Ruby Valley Homestay trekking experience are spring and summer if you want to appreciate it to the fullest.
Another noteworthy feature of this trek is the hot spring in the Ruby Valley, where visitors may unwind and have a wonderful showering experience that is both soothing and effective for sore muscles.
