Ganesh Himal Base Camp and Ruby Valley Trek 17 Days
Ganesh Himal Base Camp and Ruby Valley Trek are some of the trekking trails of Nepal which were recently added and go in the midst of Langtang National Park and Manaslu Conservation Area. Named after valuable Gem Ruby, this trial has a lot to offer to the adventurers from its wonderful mountain views to amazing meadows, holy lakes, great landscape, waterfalls, high passes, and culture of various ethnic groups. The main ethnic groups are Gurung, Tamang, Magar, and Dalit. This trek is best for the individuals who like to travel in the very less touristic region to experience authentic local culture, remain at the home, and interact with local people living here. You get to experience something that is worth remembering as this region is home to hundreds of species of precious medicinal herbs, colorful wildflowers, and more than 200 species of birds.
Our journey to Ganesh Himal Region starts with a long drive to Syabrubesi, passing lovely villages including Ghatlang, Somdam, Tipling, Shertung, Chalis Goan. Appreciating the incredible views of waterfalls, rhododendron and juniper forests, and lush vegetation, you will also get the golden opportunity to speculate the sight of the magnificent Ganesh Himal. Kalo and Seto Kunda lakes are also worth visiting on this trek.

MONEY & CREDIT CARD INFO
Most of the credit card, master and visa card is blocked from your card provider. It may be because of a security reason. It, sometimes, may bring you in a problematic situation that you can't get money from ATMs. To find yourself free from this problem, you can call your card provider before you travel to Nepal and inform there that you are traveling to Nepal. Ensure them to give the authorization for the payment. Be sure you have brought some small amount for your daily expenses as well as for those items which are not included in our cost.

Especially, your travel insurance must protect air ambulance, treatment charges, rescue and evacuation, product cancellation and refundable charges, flight delay, and cancellations.
Traveling in the Himalayas is full of adventurous; hence it is wise to choose a proper insurance policy. While choosing your insurance policy, make sure that it will protect all such unforeseen expenses. You must ensure that the policy you do take provides an adequate level of protection, well familiar with your itinerary and covers you for the activities involved. You must carry proof of insurance (e.g. your insurance certificate) with you on the holiday or send us a scanned copy and it must be issued from your homeland.

VACCINATION FOR NEPAL
Travelers should consult with their physician or update on vaccination requirements before travel. (Your doctor or the health-care provider will determine what you will need, depending on factors such as your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, and planned activities). For traveling to Nepal, we recommend you to take vaccination of Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Rabies, etc. However, it is not mandatory but recommended.
ALTITUDE SICKNESS (ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS)
Altitude sickness, also known as AMS (acute mountain sickness), is caused by a lack of oxygen at high altitudes (normally above 3,000m). It occurs as the result of our bodies’ inability to adapt to a sudden increase in altitude. If given time, our bodies will adjust and a gradual ascent will decrease the possibility of altitude sickness.
PREVENTION OF AMS: Go slowly, drink a lot of water, and pay attention to the sensations of your body. If symptoms occur you have climbed too far for the day. Rest at the same altitude will give you time to acclimatize and usually relieve mild symptoms.
MILD SYMPTOMS: Headache, nausea, loss of appetite, and mild shortness of breath with minimal exertion, difficulty sleeping, dizziness or lightheadedness, mild weakness, fatigue, a general unwell feeling.
SERIOUS SYMPTOMS: The inability to recover from shortness of breath with rest, severe persistent headache, low urine output, vomiting, confusion, delirium, loss of coordination. These require immediate descent as acclimatization will not take place at the same altitude.
The key is to trek slowly, carry a light pack and just take it easy. Allow your body the time it needs to acclimatize.
Upon your arrival at TIA International Airport, our company's representatives are stationed to pick you up. They will be holding your name sign along with the company's name in it. Our office representative will escort you to your hotel in Kathmandu.

"The highlight of my trip, in my opinion, was ( lol was everything....). I was blown away by the possibility to enjoy such fantastic cuisine and a tour with a knowledgeable guide. I was there with my US Military pals for our dark holiday (Christmas and New Year). Everyone stated it was incredibly inexpensive and unexpected, and that they had a lot of fun in a short amount of time. We are grateful to the Ganesh Himal trek squad "I'll see you as soon as possible with another military unit.- Brian Mayer ( )
Helambu Trek, Greater than expected !!!
Alpha Adventure Treks - who has meticulously planned everything! entrusted us with a guide and two porters: wonderful, professional individuals! We are not expert climbers, but we love the mountains, therefore the journey was a little tiring but also easy for us. This is a critical aspect to never crash, even when fatigue sets in! The mountains are breathtaking!- Laura G. ( )
Anyone planning a trip in Nepal should definitely consider Alpha Adventure Treks. Their friendly staff provides a professional, caring, and educational environment. My family and friends thought the company delivered an authentic and stress-free trip, and they were especially grateful for the warmth and support shown to family members who were suffering from altitude sickness. Wonderful memories.- Stacey M. ( )
Wonderful Experience !!!
Alpha Adventure Treks organized a two-week Tamang Heritage expedition, which I completed. It's one of the most stunning paths I've ever made. The hike was incredible; everything about it was fantastic, especially the ancient traditional houses, people, and their way of life. Don't miss the Nagthali vantage point.
"100% reliable company, friendly and knowledgeable guides with outstanding command of the English language"
Everything went perfectly during my 11-day trek in the Langtang Valley. We hired a guide and porter from the area and had a great time learning about the area. We set out from Syabrubesi on the high road, passing through breathtaking scenery.
All of the Tea Houses where we stayed were clean, friendly, and served delicious cuisine. Even though we bought our own sleeping bags, they all provided blankets. Every day, we were treated to breathtaking sights and breathtaking mountains. The weather would also be sunny every day, with the exception of the afternoons, which would most likely be cloudy. The view from Laurebina Yak is breathtaking, with Himalayan peaks stretching all the way to the Annapurnas. This was a fantastic Trek, and you should go and take part in it.
