How to find a suitable camping site?

For the pleasure and tranquility of camping, even if you are very tired, you should choose your camp site carefully. The three most important points in choosing a camping site are drainage, wind and terrain.

01-Survey the terrain carefully

Before setting up a tent, you must carefully survey the terrain. There should be no rolling stones or weathered rocks above the camp. Once you find signs of rock scattering nearby, you must never set up a tent. Try to avoid camping in a concave place. The camp should choose a place close to the water source, which can not only ensure the water for cooking and drinking, If it is far away from the water source, it will cause a lot of inconvenience to the camp, even dangerous.

02-Do not build camping site where mudslides are frequent

Many stones have traces of being wrapped in mud, which is the main sign to identify the occurrence of debris flow. Don’t choose camps too close to the debris flow channel.

03-Don’t build camps on river beaches, streams and valleys in thunderstorm days

To prevent being swept away by sudden floods. Many times, the camp will choose to be on the ridge or the banks of the river in order to enjoy the scenery. It is an ideal camping site, but if there is heavy downpour, the water in the valley may suddenly rise suddenly, washing away hiking shoes, food, etc., or even being washed away by the current together.

04-Be sure to pay attention to the local climate, cultural and water conditions before camping in the wild

When you are camping, you need to choose a place with good drainage, do not choose a rainwater channel, and facilitate a path that can be escaped when it is dangerous. When everything is settled, pay attention to the amount and turbidity of the water source and the sound of running water. Never be careless or do not observe carefully.

05-Camps should be sheltered from the wind

The wind will be quickly to take away from the heat of the human body and make people cold. at the same time, the strong wind will take away the tent, which not only disturbs the rest, but also makes it more difficult to light the bonfire. It is also difficult to guarantee cooking and heating, so the camp must be sheltered from the wind. It is best to be on the leeward side of a hill, in a forest or forest clearing, a cave, the side of a ridge, under a rock, etc.

06-Observe for beast footprints, feces, and nests around the camp

Don’t build it in a place where there are many snakes and rats to prevent injury or damage to equipment. Must have mosquito repellent, insect, scorpion medicine and protective measures. Spreading some grass and ash around the camp will very effectively prevent the intrusion of snakes, scorpions and poisonous insects.

07-Try to choose a good place with sunshine

This will make the campsite relatively warm, dry, and clean, making it easy to dry clothes and so on.
