Relax in Bhujung
On 17th of June 2014, a team of Nepal Mountain Lovers Treks & Expedition went to Bhujung, the biggest Gurung village in Lamjung district of Nepal. Our off-road journey all the way down to Bhujung was nice that took about two hours. Though, due to monsoon, in some places we were attacked by leeches. The weather was cloudy that allowed us to see only few snow- capped mountains like Lamjung Himal and some part of Mount Annapurna.
Bhujung is a really interesting village. All wards of one Village Development Committee are situated in the same village. It is not the same in other places in Nepal where nine wards make one Village Development Committee that consists of several villages. The main attraction of Bhujung is the same "Bhujung" tribe in the entire village. Houses are crowded in both sides of a small footpath. The green valley with rice fields is wonderful just down of Bhujung which is very popular for honey hunting. There are a number of honey hunting sites with lots of hives. All wild honey bees prefer to nestle close by a beautiful and big water spring. Visiting those challenging hunting sites was really interesting. As there is no pollution, honey from Bhujung village is very healthy.
It was a perfect trip to study the wild honey hunting in Nepal and experience Nepal's rural life and Bhujung indigenous community. We truly recommend you to visit Bhujung with no doubt. There are home stays to welcome you.
