Wild Bee Hives

Despite the busy traffic on the main highway below, The botherless bees live in the uncountable massive hives hanging just above the road between Gelephu district and Tingtibi. Locally known as “Khago”, these huge wild rock bees play an important role in agricultural yields of the nearby local farmers. In the olden days, locals also collected honey from the hives and was an important source of nutrition. Now the locals domesticate other species of bee which produces more honey, thus, the wild hives are not hunted anymore.
A signage warning the people passing by to close their car windows can be seen few kilometers before the location of the spot.
