Not just Pokhara, but also at Chapkharka, Kot Danda, Phulchowki, and Bandipur, you can enjoy stunning landscapes from the air.

National Geographic named Pokhara one of the best places in the world for paragliding. So, put this on your bucket list right away.


Mad Honey Hunting

Wild Honey Hunting, also known as Mad Honey Hunting in Nepal, is a one-of-a-kind adventure activity in Nepal. Honey hunting has been a part of ancient cultures of different civilizations. It is a genuine and common activity conducted by the Nepalese indigenous people for thousands of years.

Honey hunting comprises harvesting honey from large beehives nestled in cliffs 200-500 metres high using traditionally braided rope. Mad honey hunting takes place in rural Nepal including Rukum, Lamjung, Kaski, Myagdi, and Jumla. Watching this accomplishment achieved by local honey hunters on your honey-hunting expedition will be awe-inspiring, and joining them will be even more so!
