Camping solo is super fun, but here are some guidelines which need to be considered while camping alone.
1. Pick the right campsite
Choosing the right campsite is crucial with respect to the experience you want out of the trip. Make sure you pick a known campsite which is accessible 365 days a year. A good starting point would be checking reviews on Google. Ask local authorities about the campsite. Also, check the camp proximity from local markets and nearby bus stations.
2. Setup camp properly
Before you set up your camp, check for rules, regulations and facilities available at the campsite. If you are carrying your own tents, then pick up an ideal spot for camping. According to the view from the tent, pitch it on an ideal surface where you can camp best and there are no obstacles.
3. Inform friends and family
Let your friends and family know well in advance the name of the camping ground, contact details of the camp officer and location of the campsite.
4. Gear self with the right equipment
Make sure you have the right essentials for camping in the wilderness. A few essentials are a 1L water bottle, extra pair of slippers, hiking shoes, headlamps and power banks.
5. Stay sober
Since you are solo and out in the wilderness, it is advisable to stay sober. Check out the place and the hosts, take full responsibility of your belongings. If you are looking at friendly hosts, please drop by YOLO Camping with a riverside peace vibe along with friendly hosts.
6. Check weather
Find out the weather forecast before you leave the house. Plan and pack your gear accordingly. Weather forecast can help you plan better on the timings, mode of transport and backup plans if you are stuck somewhere. This is one of the most crucial things. This helps keep your trip smooth and relaxing.
7. Organise food and drink
Always check at the campsite for what kind of food is actually available. Accordingly, you can pick your food and drink supplies. If you are looking at a place with an in-house cafe, then YOLO Cafe is the perfect place to try out authentic Indian food.
8. Plan route
Always plan your route well while you are travelling. Make sure you reach the campsite during daylight and avoid reaching during nightfall.
9. Pack light
Packing light is one of the most crucial tips. Campsites are not usually accessible directly from the road. It is advisable to pack light to enjoy the off-road walk to the campsite. Packing light also lets you cover a few more places around and gives you the freedom to move around and hike with ease.
10. Get sound sleep
While you are at the camp, get some really sound sleep. The sleep you will get at the campsite will be the best you must have gotten in the past few days.
