Landlocked, top of the world, Nepal is not only famous for trekking, hiking and climbing in the high mountains but is also great place for the honey hunting trips. Honey hunting is the real and frequent activity of indigenous gurung and Magar community in Bhujung and pasgaon for honey hunting still continues in many rural villages of Nepal while offering high tourism potential.

“The honey hunters are a tribe of Mongol in Nepal who follow the tradition of honey hunting, a tradition passed down since generations. The bees are driven away from the honeycomb by smoke. Besides being an economic activity harvesting cliff honey, honey hunting also involves special rituals and satisfies the leisure requirements of isolated mountain people. Hunting cliff honey is a dangerous activity and most of the cliffs are named and remembered by the names of honey hunters who died during honey harvesting. This culture does not allow the total eradication of bee nests but rather supports the sustainable presence and multiplication of cliff bees.”
