Mad Honey Expedition
A’ stands for adventure and just thinking about adventure brings an adrenaline rush. If you were to be a part of a rare ancient tradition of wild honey hunting from the cliffs of Himalayas ranging above 3000 m above sea level amid beautiful Rhododendron forests, wouldn’t you say yes? We experience this thrilling adventure with every harvest of mad honey and now, we want you to be a part of it. Nepal, synonymously known as the country of ‘Mount Everest’ houses so much more than what the world knows. Up in the Himalayas resides a unique breed of honeybees that make Best Mad Honey so special– the great Apis Laboriosa. We want you to watch them!
Every year from Late April to Early July (Baisakh to Ashad) and September-October(Ashoj-Kartik), we pack our bags and join the expedition of our wild honey-hunters. More than a journey, it will be a lifetime experience to witness the authenticity of the honey that reaches your doorstep and you definitely don’t want to miss it. Here’s how we manage the entire trip.
This is a general itinerary and can be customized according to your comfort. Having you in the team is what carries meaning to us and comfort is a top priority!

Best time for Expedition
It is never a bad time to navigate the himalayan trails. However, the best time of the year for an expedition of mad honey hunting is during Late April-Early July and September-October. The bees build honeycombs and make honey during this time. Moreover, the weather is wonderful i.e neither too hot nor too cold.
