Becoming a Man - Facing the Giant Bees

Top of page

Nepal - the sheer cliffs of the Himalayas. Suspended from fragile ladders of woven bamboo, men risk their lives in search of the golden liquid valued since the dawn of time: honey. But to reach the treasure, they must confront the giant bees.


The wild bee of Nepal is the largest bee species in the world - its sting is potentially fatal. Only the bravest and toughest still face the challenge of gathering the wild honey.


Moti will climb for the first time and will take us on three spectacular ascents. He will confront the dizzying void off the cliffs and the terrible daggers of the bees. Will he be able to do it?
