Honey Hunters Of Nepal DVD

Twice a year, Gurung tribesmen of west-central Nepal enter the jungle in search of honey. Eric Valli and Diane Summers, freelance photojournalists, lived with the honey hunters for eight months and here document this ancient tradition.

They tell of the band of nine honey hunters, led by the 63-year-old Mani Lal whose responsibility is unique: he alone descends a bamboo ladder hundreds of feet down sheer rock faces to find the hives of giant black bees nestled on the cliff walls.

Once he discovers a nestwhich may be as large as four by six feet, he drives the bees out with smoke, and then, still suspended by the ladder over the cliff face, dislodges the hive with bamboo poles. The hive is then lowered via pulleys to the other hunters waiting below, and Mani Lal climbs on to locate another nest. recommend visit inside to see DVD and Cd about Buddhism CATALOG
