Honey hunting trip has acquired a status of adventure sports activity owing to its rising popularity. A gritty and daring challenge, it’s only some time before people start venturing to test their capabilities, dangling few hundred feet above ground on a cliff amidst a swarm of honey bees to cut through hives of honeycomb.
Honey hunting is culturally significant and has been in practice since centuries in Nepal. Earlier, it was undertaken twice a year during the festivities of Udhauli and Ubhauli. Indigenous Himalayan folks have been practicing this art in a bid to extract the purest form of honey. While a tradition, Honey hunting is also done for medicinal values of honey.
Consumption of honey supports metabolism and helps improve immunity.
Effects of honey help maintain body temperature which is significant if you are a Himalayan native. No wonder these natives risk their lives for this edible molten gold. Also believed is that honey obtained from the hives of those wild bees has a peculiar hallucinating characteristic, which, recently, has attracted those seeking natural highs.
Naturally, honey is harvested at different locales but honey hunting is carried out in the remote hillside, by the Himalayas. Let’s get to know the major aspects of this trip.
