Bhutan Cordyceps (Yartsa Goenbub) is an annual harvest that matures between May to July of the year.

Every year, in late June, licensed Bhutanese farmers will ascend the sacred mountains in the regions of Paro, Wangduephodrang, Gasa, Lhuntse, Trashigang, Trashiyangtse, and Bumthang in search of Cordyceps.
