Overview of Honey Hunting Tour


In Nepal, Honey Hunting tour is an age-old traditional activity practiced twice in a year (spring and autumn) to collect the wild honey by handing on a rock hill. As it is true that Nepal is rich in honey bee and a better place for honey hunting, the tradition now is promoted as an adventure and touristic activity. This challenging tour can be more adventures for those with knowledge of rock climbing and those who are brave to take such risk. There are more than five different species found in Nepal. The nearest destination to watch the honey hunting is Ghalegaun that lies in the south-west of Kathmandu, in Lamjung District. The trail to Ghalegaun also offers the various spectacular views of Himalaya Ranges like snow-capped Annapurna ranges and Manaslu Himal.

This traditional way of honey hunting tour is a tradition which has been passed down from the generations to the Indigenous Nepali community like Gurung and Magar in Nepal. The honey was treated like sugar in ancient time when there was not any production of sugar. The honey hunters extract the honey from the unusually massive beehives nestled in a tall rock cliff. To observe this feat performed by the honey hunters will be a very mesmerizing event of your life.  This honey hunting is a hazardous activity, and many hunters have died during these activities as well. Therefore, there are many cliffs which are named and remembered by the name of those died honey hunters also.

The locals celebrate this honey hunting tour as their one of the festival also by offering flowers, grains, and sheep to God before hunting. It is also said that the festival was celebrated and worship was organized to respect the hard work of honeybees and their contribution to the survival of human beings. It is a thrilling moment to watch the work of those honey hunters. The experienced honey hunters climb the rock and hang from cliffs as tall as 300m only with the help of their homemade ropes and Bamboo ladders. The leader of hunters collects the honey in the bucket and passes to another person. The wild honey has good demand for medical purpose and in the international market too.
