      Honey Hunters of Nepal. French photogrpher Eric Valli took some amazing photos of the honey Hunters of Nepal. “High in the Himalayan foothills, fearless Gurung men risk their lives to harvest the massive nests of the worlds largest honeybee. The photos were taken in 1987 and still feel quite modern for being that old.
