It is one of the adventures recently developed in Nepal and is part of the ancient culture of many civilizations. Scientists have estimated, through the literature on rock painting, that honey hunting was implemented from the year 13,000 BC. In Nepal, the honey-hunting journey has been practiced for thousands of years and is an important part of the Nepalese culture.
Honey hunting has become one of the main attractions of the annual Gurung festival held in the Lamjung district. For centuries, the Nepalese Gurung tribes have been collecting honey from the Himalayan cliffs, but now their lifestyle is threatened by commercialization and tourism, providing visitors with the activity of “joining the bees” in the Himalayas.
The most popular destinations for honey hunting are in Bhujung, Nai Chi, Pasgaon, Naya Gaun, Ludhi and Dare. Everywhere is the road to Annapurna Circuit Trek. Foreign tourists will be amazed at the speed and courage of the honey hunters who make their living on the cliffs and marvel at the ancient techniques still in use today.
Nepal’s honey hunting route is impressive, far from the inaccessible walk, which familiarizes you with the ancient professions of the remote villages of Annapurna.
