The below video was made by our chinese customer during his visit to our company. The video has been aired on one of the most popular chinese TV channels called CCV7. At the moment the video is avalable only in chinese language. Here is a short explanantion about what is going on in this video.
One businessman from Beijing sends his assistant to Russia, to Irkutsk to bring him Siberian chaga. The chinese guest and his host, the Director of our company Pavel (the bearded man in a gray jacket), are going by car to the village first, where they are joined by Sasha. Sasha is an experienced forest guide. After a short introduction they are set out for a walk in search of chaga. On 12.40 minute you will see how chaga mushroom is actually being picked up from a tree. The chaga hunter has to climb up a tree in order to cut off the chaga.
At one moment they encounter with a bear and Sasha manages to safely lead all the group away from the danger. On 22 and 24 minutes you can briefly see some of Baikal Herbs Ltd facilities and some workers busy with sorting chaga. And of course video depicts beautiful Baikal landscapes and Siberian villages.
