The brave beekeepers in Shennongjia National Park, central China’s Hubei Province, have to gather their courage as they collect honey from hives nestled into steep cliff faces. Experts say the population and habitats of Asian honeybees have been reduced sharply in the 20th century due to environmental changes and the introduction of Western honeybees. The unique climatic and geographic conditions make Shennongjia a sanctuary for Asian honeybees and more than 1,000 kinds of nectar.
