Beehives in Cliffs
There are countless beehives that lie along the various trekking paths. They are technically and scientifically exploited and represent a significant potential for extracting honey as an additional crop and food. The honey hunt, the collection of honey from the wild bees’ nests, which clings to the steep cliffs, has an ancient tradition. Local honey hunters demonstrate their exceptional skills by hanging onto the 300-meter high vertical cliffs using bamboo ladders and hemp ropes as they harvest the honeycombs. Everyone is excited to watch the hunters doing their sweet work.

Our honey hunting program changes more often as the locations of bee colonies and hives change. The bees often change colonies, they choose steep and inaccessible rock faces and cliffs. So that the honey hunters are always on the lookout for new “prey”.
Rock Cliff Honey Hunting is a natural process and also depends on the nature of the bee colonies and conditions of the particular hunting season, so that the hunting grounds in the steep and dangerous cliffs can change and then the programs are changed accordingly.
