Along with hundreds of migrant harvesters headed to collect caterpillar fungus in northern part of Bajhang District, west Nepal, are teachers and students of a local school. As the school remains closed during the harvest season, they have decided to continue their classes in the field when they have time. Children accompany their elders for harvest as they are more efficient than their elders. Meanwhile, locals in highlands of Dolpa are concerned about the influx of harvesters as trampling is damaging the pasture lands.
