What you'll do

At Silent Valley-Alchauna, as your host, my father and I offer you a great opportunity to observe the sophisticated structure of bee civilization. From the guards at the hive entry, to the nurses tending the little, to the “energetic females” and “lazy males,” to the glaring elusive queen, each bee has a place inside this complex community. Get your hands-on at the beehive, their life cycle, learning how to care for bees, and benefits of honey. Get a memorable experience to “suit up” in a beekeeping suit, and to get as up close and intimate with the bees as they wish...a thrilling experience &and great photo opportunity! The experience consists of a “The Silent Valley” farm located along river Kalsa in the Himalaya. Here guests are involved in: • Plant pollinator-friendly plants for bees. • Practical includes equipment, wooden-ware & additional items that can help with colony management. • Disease control • Farm will provide an overview of the best practices for honeybee colony management to reduce stress on both the bees & the beekeeper. Note- If the sun is not with us (cloudy sky), we would avoid to open beehive. However, we will other activities.

Amit

Born and brought up in the mountains. Growing up in Himalayan Mountains has been a blessing and an experience in itself. Farming has been family’s traditional occupation. Growing up on a farm is the best. You can't beat the life lessons, the hard work and rewards, the family time. There has been a tradition of beekeeping in remote villages of our region, which is associated with genetic diversity of Indica (Apis cerana), availability of bee forage plants and a wealth of indigenous knowledge in sustainable management of beekeeping in traditional wall hives in houses.
