Guided Mushroom Foraging

Overview

An eco-adventure in the forested acreage of Bhutan is sure to end up as a unique and memorable holiday experience for many. Foraging for mushrooms in traditional Bhutanese style offers a delightful insight into the culinary heritage of the people here. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn even the basics about the astonishing range of mushrooms there are and be able to identify what is edible and what is not, from the experts; this can be real fun for you to share if those secrets and skills have been handed down from generation to generation amongst family members.

Why you will love it

  • Participate in this unique foraging expedition.
  • Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and scents of the forest.
  • Enjoy the entertainment and excellent learning experience, of what is edible, what’s quite useless or what’s poisonous, when mushroom hunting
  • One-to-one cookery class

What you will experience

Mushroom hunting in itself is quite an art. Sussing out what will be a gourmet delight or a poisonous variety needs some very careful thought and practice so this is your opportunity to learn hands-on the finer aspects of mushroom foraging. You can also take the opportunity to enjoy the sights and scents of the forest, as Bhutan’s botanical wealth is a legend.  Each variety comes with its own distinctive character and peculiarities of its particular habitat – so doing your homework will pay off when it comes to enjoying the fruits…or shall we say ‘shrooms,  of your labour. Foraging is a hungry business so select how you want your prize 'shrooms prepared or make them the highlight of the menu in a cookery class arranged just for you and just savour the organic natural flavours that arrive on your plate as you sit down to a fun-filled meal. Having imbibed of all the knowledge on the short trip, don’t be surprised finding yourself hooked on their mystery; you might even end up scrolling through the Net to learn more about mushroom hunting….and maybe, even getting smart enough to venture into it with adventure-loving friends in a more serious way. After all, in some parts of the world some rare mushrooms are worth their price in gold…well almost!!!!
