In the mist-shrouded mountains of Nepal’s Hongu River valley, the Kulung practice an ancient form of animism structured around the God Rongkemi. A wiry and unassuming man named Mauli Dhan Rai is believed to have been chosen by the gods for the perilous rite of honey harvesting.
He was born and raised in North Carolina, but for almost twenty years he has lived in Telluride, Colorado. A self-taught director and photographer, he founded Felt Soul Media together with Travis Rummel.
