A Gurung honey hunter climbs a rope ladder to begin the biannual honey harvest high up in the hills of the Annapurna ranges. The honey they harvest is of Apis Laboriosa, the largest honeybees in the world. Their 'red honey' produced during spring contains intoxicating properties due to the poisonous nectar of white rhododendrons that grow in these high altitudes.
