Honey Hunting in Nepal

The only time I’ve had trouble collecting honey is when it’s particularly runny and falls off my spoon.

If my honey proved as difficult to get as the stuff the Gurung tribe finds in Nepal, I’d probably stick to Marmalade.

The tribe has to journey to the Himalayan cliffs to find the hives that house the sweet nectar.

Andrew Newey has captured their spectacular efforts to make us feel grateful that all we need do is pop to a Supermarket aisle.
