Honey Hunting tour always have been tendering the experience of ritualistic vibes involving on adventurous tour on the rural and remote region of the Nepal. Twice a year (spring and autumn) high in the Himalayan foothills of mid Nepal teams of men assemble around cliffs that are habitat to the world’s largest honeybee, Apis laboriosa. As they have for origination, the men come to garner the Himalayan cliff bee’s honey. The harvest ritual, which varies faintly from community to community, begins with a prayer and surrender of flowers, fruits, and rice. Then a fire is lit at the foundation of the cliff to smoke the bees from their honeycombs. From above, a honey hunter descends the cliff harnessed to a ladder by ropes. As his mates secure the rope and ladder from the top and transport tools up down as required, the honey hunter fights defensive bees as he cuts out chunks of honey from the comb. A chance to outlook and experience the traditional honey hunting harvest of the Gurung people is beyond excellence. The Bees Apis Laboriosa and Apis Dorsata are indigenous to the territory and traditional methods of harvesting the honey on vertical cliffs have lingered unchanged for generations. This typical exploration tradition is now promoted as a tourism activity during the hunting period as the Honey Hunting Tour.
