In addition to being pricked by thorns when harvesting, mushroom hunters like Phuong are bitten by mosquitoes, and encounter snakes and scorpions.

According to Phuong, he spent 15 years uprooting termites mushrooms, knowing every nook and cranny, but he didn’t always go to the forest to meet him. “Heaven’s hunting is also random. I can’t see it when I step over, but people who come after a few minutes can pull up the whole mushroom package,” Phuong said.
