Harvested at the snow line, this paratisized caterpillar is highly valued in traditional Chinese medicine for it's use as an agent of (alleged) virility. At close to Rs500 a piece (a fiver) a good harvest can keep a family in the pink for a year or more. Our Himalayan idyll, the vacant European fantasy of Shangri-La, was a little undone by canny locals legging up the hill at the same time as us for the month long harvest.
