How to find a chaga mushroom?
Find how all the mushrooms are looking for. On the trees. Someone smells, I personally manage by a mine detector.
The chaga mushroom is such an outgrowth on the trunk of a birch or any other deciduous tree. But the birch chaga is the steepest and most healing. Growth up to 50 cm, weight up to 5 kg. The surface is black, can shine, is covered with cracks, very hard. Inside brownish-brown, friable, with whitish-yellow streaks. Other names of the tinder are oblique.

More details what's what for here
Mushroom chaga is easy to find by contacting several pharmacies. In one of them he will definitely be. If the toad strangles, then you need to go to the birch forest and look there. I only met once. More precisely, I just collected. It was on an island near the lake, where in each direction from 3 to 7 kilometers of swamps. On the island there were several fallen birches, on which grew chaga. E we collected, then I did not drink for several months. So I can assure you that near the cities such mushrooms are already torn off, you need to look in the wild. And I recall that cutting trees without a license entails major fines.
