Camping a Way Of Life!
By Ravi Dabbiroo
More and more people are traveling these days for different reasons. Some travel for adventure, some to be close to nature and some for just a rejuvenating weekend getaway. A definite upcoming trend is more and more people seeking untouched locales and wilderness.
Camping is a great way to enjoy amazing outdoors and be close to nature. It is not just another holiday; it's a way of life. While camping out, one is surrounded by nature and serenity. The experience might be missing urban comforts that one is used to but in return one gets to explore a lot that is absolutely different from the usual city life.
In the hustle bustle of the fast paced life that we live in, we tend to lose touch with our own selves. Camping is a wonderful way to get in touch with one's inner self. I have had some amazing first-hand experiences with life whilst camping and so have my fellow travelers who have ever since been hooked to it.
Apart from being submerged in wilderness, an important component of camping is the interaction with the localities, villagers and natives. These native guides know the unexplored places, the less traveled paths, the unknown facts, myths and stories about the locations. Camping allows the travelers to understand the way of life, being with the localities and expose them to close and unique multi-cultural experiences.
Most of the camping breaks are clubbed with adventure sports such as rafting, rock climbing, trekking etc.
