Twice a year the Gurung tribesmen of Nepal lower themselves down the face of cliffs in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, gathering honey using little more than rope ladders.

In 1987, photographer Eric Valli and his wife Diane Summers went into the jungles of Nepal to meet up with the Gurung tribesman and document their remarkable quest for honey.
