Located west to the south gate of Black Bamboo Park (ZiZhuYuan), ZhongShi ChongCaoHang sells a large selection of Chinese Caterpillar Fungi. Now, I know what you¡¯re thinking. And I must admit I felt the same way upon first hearing it. However, the caterpillar fungus has been widely used as a traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years. The tonic has shown to help treat tuberculosis, coughing, anemia, and back &knee pains. Today, people who take the tonic mainly use it to increase strength or to rejuvenate the body after a long serious injury. Some also believe that the fungus can also reduce stress.
The fungi offered at ZhongShi come from NaQu, Tibet, considered to be the best and most natural in the world. Price varies from RMB 280 to RMB 480 a gram depending on quality. You can also buy a large gift box costs about RMB 3,200. In addition, ZhongShi also sells various over-the-counter medicine.
