As a former hunter, Tsering Tashi never thought the prey he once hunted in the mountains would one day stroll into his village and play a vital role in boosting tourism.

Over the past decades, 56-year-old Tsering Tashi and other Tibetan hunters in Zhagana village, located in the deep mountains of Northwest China's Gansu province, have sought prey to make a living.

"Hunting for a living was no easy job, but back then, we had to survive," recalls Tsering Tashi, who learned to hunt from his father when he was a child. "Have respect for nature. Never hunt female or wounded animals. These are our rules."
