Bee Farm

This is one of the many bee farms scattered around the mountains overlooking Naran Valley. The people here wear no protective gear other than a flimsy net cloth around their faces. “Our tough mountain skin is all the protection we need” says Irfan Sahab light heartedly. On a serious note he adds “We, Pathans, are a happy, hardworking bunch. People who come here expect us to be sad, deprived or miserable. How can one stay miserable when there is so much beauty all around?”
