Once the herb is spotted, they first measure the distance with their hands, then take out a hoe the size of a palm, raise a small piece of turf around the cordyceps, carefully remove the herb, and fill the turf back in place. The purpose of measuring the distance is to prevent the cordyceps from being cut off, and backfilling the turf is to protect the environment, so that the grass on the surface can continue to grow.

Harvesting cordyceps is an important source of income for many local herdsmen. Just like in previous years, herdsmen gather at the cordyceps collection site in Ranmutang village. They open their arms to accept nature's gifts from the snow-covered plateau.
