First Time Camping Ideas For Beginners

First Time Camping Ideas For Beginners

Spending a night under canvas is one of the beautiful experiences that you should not miss out on. Whether you want to enjoy camping with your friends, family, or even a solo adventure, it is a great experience that can’t be beaten. Everyone enjoys the freedom of sleeping out door and enjoying nature. People who haven’t done camping before might think it is a daunting experience.

First time camping ideas for beginners

If you are seeking a relaxing and peaceful thing to do, camping is the best option. You can enjoy all the outdoor activities and experience a lot of things. Would you please read my blog to know all the essentials things to keep in mind before you set camping for the first time?

Avoid pitching your tent under a tree: Do not pitch your tent under a tree. You might be attracted to the spot under the tree since it is private from the rest of the spots. Laying your tent under a tree might seem like inviting the rays of the sun that comes through the leaves. But avoid pitching your tent there since the sticky droplets of sap will make the packing of your tent a bit difficult.

Eat healthy food: You should avoid eating noodles and other junk food to stay healthy. It will be a good experience if you stay fit throughout your camping. You can carry some rice, grain into a freezer bag, some spice, tomato puree, and some curry paste. It is more satisfying to eat healthy food when you are away from your home. Plan your meal according to the number of people accompanying you. Remember to do your grocery shopping a day before departure so that your food remains fresh.

Buy a Tent that is Big Enough: When you plan your camp for the first time, you might be wrong at buying a tent. Choose a spacious and comfortable camp for yourself. Be an intelligent camper and buy a big camp. If you are two people, buy a camp for four and so on since the camps fit inside your car quickly, no need to worry about the size and weight of the tent.

Carry good clothes with you:

  1. Since there is no laundry facility available for you, carry enough clothes for yourself. You can pack your clothes according to the camp location and weather.
  2. If you are going during monsoon season, remember to carry a raincoat and carry jackets and sweaters if it’s winter season.
  3. Be an intelligent camper and carry the clothes accordingly.

Camp close to your home: If you are a first-time camper, avoid going far away from your home. Since everything is unpredictable, like the weather, you may also not find sleeping on the grass comfortable and maybe wanting to eat something good; you might want to go back to your home in all such situations. Hence you can plan your camp near your home to be safe when you fall into any of the above situations.

Avoid planning in Severe Weather: Camping is all about relaxing and comforting yourself from the daily routine. Always plan your camp according to the pleasant weather. Avoid camping in the monsoon season since, after the rain, the campsites are muddy and sticky and become difficult for you to enjoy. It becomes uncomfortable sitting back at the tent and watching the rain pouring down your tent. It is best to plan your camp in the moderate season.

The tips mentioned above are some of the things you must follow while planning your camp for the first time. If you follow the tips, you can easily have a good experience for the first time only. It will be great fun for you.

Kinner Kailash Yatra

Kinner Kailash Yatra

Every year many people plan for the Kinner Kailash yatra without any fear. But, according to Hindu Mythology, Kinner Kailash Trek is a sacred place in the Indian Himalayas associated with Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati. A natural pond/Kund near Kinnar Kailash peak, known as Parvati Kund, is considered Goddess Parvati’s creation. The path leading to the mountains is not easy, and it is the most challenging Trek. The Kinner Kailash Parvath is at the height of 17200 ft above sea level, and the Kinner Kailash range is in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh near the Indo Tibetan border.

Mythology states that Lord Shiva conducted a meeting of Goddesses and Gods at Kinner Kailash peak every winter. This accounts for the Yatra that takes place every year during this time by devotees of Lord Shiva and local deities. It is also known as ‘Aashiqi Park’ as it is a meeting point of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. The locals of the region help you to reach this rock. It takes 2-3 days to complete the Trek.

Trekking track to Kinner Kailash

Kinner Kailash is a 14 km long trek which is not an easy one. If you wish to trek, you will surely enjoy the beauty of nature and surroundings.

There are snow-clad mountains, lush greenery forests, and green apple orchards. The landscape view on its way is mind-blowing, and it makes the Trek more exciting. Through this Trek, you will reach Sangla valley and Hanging Valley, where you can see nature at its best. It is the land of tales and legends, and once you are there, the view is undoubtedly worth the hard work of trekking to Mount Kailash.

Best time to travel Kinner Kailash

The starting point, i.e. the base camp of the Trek, is Tangling Village in Himachal Pradesh. It is located at the height of 7050 ft on the banks of the Satluj river. From there, you can take Jhoola Pul, i.e. the hanging bridge, for the further journey.

From tangling, you reach Malang Khata, which is 8 km, and then Parvati Kund, which is 5 km from there. After moving one kilometer, you go to Kinner Kailash Shivlingam to seek the services of a guide you can take from the Tangling village.

Best time for Kinner Kailash Yatra

The Trek starts from May to October every year. However, it is recommended to go between September and October. The region experiences heavy rainfall during June, July, and August, making it difficult for the trekkers. Avoid going during these months, as landslides are expected during the monsoon period. Remember to avoid trekking at night.

Things to carry while traveling to Kinner Kailash Parvath 

While going on a trek, remember to carry few things that are necessary for you. A few suggested things are woollen clothes as the temperature is cool, trekking shoes/boots, walking stick as the road is a bit dangerous, sunglasses, water bottle, energy drinks, windcheaters, first aid box, flashlight, and batteries, etc.

The Wrap 

If you are planning to Trek to Kinner Kailash Parvath, remember to avoid going during the monsoon period. Every year thousands of devotees go trekking, and it is quite a difficult task. It would be best if you were careful while traveling as the chances of road accidents are more. Natural calamities such as landslides are common.

 Before starting the journey, remember to be careful. Kinner Kailash trekking gives striking views of the snow-cold desert mountains, fertile green valleys, and vast fields of stunning orchard flowers. The natural beauty of the place is beautiful for tourists.
