In this 360 degree video, National Geographic photographer, Renan Ozturk dangles off remote Nepali cliffs to document The Last Honey Hunter. Renan and team are tracking Mauli, the last hunter in his village who pursues a hallucinogenic ‘red’ honey, known in equal measure for its medicinal properties and its value on the black markets across Asia. Without any protective equipment, Mauli will spend all day suspended hundreds of feet above the ground from hand-made bamboo rope while engulfed in a swarm of angry bees.

360-degree videos let you look around your environment, so pay attention to what’s sneaking up behind you.
In a web browser you can simply click and drag the video around. On a mobile phone you can look around by moving your phone. In a VR visor, just turn your head. With the visor, sometimes it’s best if you have a swivel chair and a few feet of clearance in the real world.
As always, if you start to feel dizzy or nauseous, take off the visor and take a break.
