Honey Hunting

Join our Honey hunting tour and discover local tradition and Gurung culture in Nepal. Honey Hunting is an age-old tradition of collecting honey from the wild honeycombs built on steep cliffs. Local honey hunters show their exceptional skills by hanging themselves from cliffs as high as 300 meters using Bamboo ladders and hemp ropes, while harvesting the honeycombs. Everyone is thrilled to watch honey hunters at work. We organize this kind of Honey hunting tour on full board camping basis. We have well experienced local Honey Hunters to do this job.  During the tour you will visit the most beautiful village & immerse in the hospitality of the local people.
