Good to Know

Best Time for Nepal Honey Hunting

Mad Honey Hunting in Nepal is seasonal, with optimal viewing times in late spring and late autumn when you're most likely to witness this captivating activity. Our honey hunting tours are offered during prime seasons:

  • October/November
  • Mid-April to May

Indigenous communities harvest honey twice a year: in April to May and October to November. Our tours are scheduled accordingly. Autumn honey hunting occurs in lower-altitude regions like Annapurna, while high-altitude hunts take place in spring, requiring a full day's trip.

Experience Wild Honey

During the Nepal Honey Hunting Tour, skilled villagers scale cliffs up to 300 meters high using homemade ropes and bamboo ladders. Leaders collect honey from hives and pass it down using buckets. Join us during hunting season to taste the exquisite flavors of wild honey, known for its medicinal value and international demand.
