    The honey collector belongs to a Rai tribe. That means :Kaatar Hunnu Bhanda Marnu Ramro

    The peak in the photo looks like Kantenga.

    Amazing photographs, that honey collector is out of this world! Either he is the world's finest Bee Whisperer, or something! NO FEAR!
    Well, maybe 'no fear' is an exaggeration, but still...that dude must have bear blood in his veins. Thanks for making my Wednesday morning, peace.

    "...their prize, the toxic rhododendron honey produced by the Apis laboriosa bee."

    I'm a little curious why toxic honey is prized? :confused:

    I was curious about the toxicity and why anyone would go through that ordeal for poison honey..
    From the article above:
    "the Rai people believe it has therapeutic healing powers, and leave their homes in the Bung valley every spring to brave the cliffs in the search of bees’ nests."
