Honey hunting is the ancestral practice of collecting honey from wild bees in the mid-western Nepal. The practice is strongly upheld by the indigenous Gurung and Magar tribes of Bhujung and Pasgaon villages. The practice has continued for hundreds of years.

The remote village of Bhujung and Pasgaon depends entirely on local employment. The honey hunting trek offers them a chance to earn living through potential tourism. The trek is designed to accommodate the local culture, lifestyle and traditions in the trip. You’d be staying as the house guests during your time at Bhujung and Pasgaon. Camping may be required for a night.

You can spend a day or two listening to the locals story, hunting honey and celebrating the feast with them.

You will start your journey from Besi Sahar and advance slowly towards the remote areas of Bhujung and Pasgaon. Tea-houses will be available at the earlier and later parts of the trek. You will get to observe the discreet culture and lifestyle of the indigenous tribesmen.

Testimonials

Annapurna is the best place on Earth. The route and scenery are breath-taking. The way leading from Machhapuchhre to Annapurna base camp is the best.

I had fun with my friends. The guide is the best! He helped us throughout the trip. I’d suggest you to take Diamox to help prevent altitude sickness. It’s really hard to breath when you reach at the top. All in all a great experience. ~Jessica Mahut (Florida, USA)
