Honey Hunting

Start of the Trip: Kathmandu
End of the Trip: Kathmandu
Duration: 7 Days

Honey hunters can set out on a perfect holiday package collaborating honey hunting activity with a scoop of trekking at Shangri – La valley. Honey Hunting has been a traditional activity for the indigenous Gurung and Magar community, which has been practiced from generations to generations especially in the areas of Bhujung and Pasgaon. Aside from these places, other hotspots for honey hunting are Annapurna region, Dhading, Jharlang across Ganesh Himal, Arun vallaey in Makalu. You will be fascinated by the techniques used by the tribesmen to collect the honey. Honey hunters climb uphill to cliffs at staggering altitude of 3500m, onlookers never cease to be amazed by watching how the hunters with their minimal traditional hunting gear gather honey. Huge honeycombs are built by Apis Laboriosa, the world’s largest honey, and honeys are usually collected twice a year. A documentary shows a hunter ascending a 200 foot rope, balancing a basket and a long pole to chisel away up to 2 million bees from their combs.
