When choosing a campsite, you must first consider the safety of the campsite-that is, the campsite must be kept away from danger! Secondly, on the premise of staying away from danger and safety, fully consider the comfort of sleep in the camp and the convenience of living functions such as catering, entertainment, washing, and sanitation; thirdly, it is necessary to select camps that have the least impact on the natural environment according to local conditions and stick to it. According to the environmental protection law of LNT (Treading No Trace), try to choose camping and living in the camp that can withstand the ground and the lowest impact on the water source of the camping site.

1. Stay away from danger

1) Don't go under the cliff or the edge of steep slope; prevent accidental injuries and deaths such as falling rocks, landslides, landslides, and avalanches;

Choose the campsite under the cliff. Once strong wind blows on the mountain, rocks and other objects may be blown off and cause accidents; especially the edge of loose soil layer with large slope, or very steep weathered and broken slopes, and there will be sudden strong winds at night. When it is difficult to observe the rainstorm, it is easy to cause collective disasters caused by landslides, landslides, and avalanches.

2) Don't be under dead wood or honeycomb; avoid "recruiting bees and butterflies" and smashing dead trees and dead trees to cause casualties;

In Hainan Island, there have been many cases of camping or resting under coconut trees, and the ripe coconuts were "melon-dried" when the wind blows down and hurt. Cases of wasp attacks are also heard from time to time.

3) Don't be on the top of a mountain or directly under a big tree to avoid being struck by lightning.

In the rainy season or in areas with heavy thunderstorms, camps must not be located on high ground, under high trees or on relatively isolated flat ground, as it is easy to attract lightning strikes; some lightning strikes do not always "blow up" from a high place and flash from the side The "flash thunder" can also cause death.

4) Don't go to animal trails and animal search points to avoid animal harassment and harm.

The animals that have lived in this land for many years are the owners of this land. We are just passing by in a hurry, visiting and staying at the "owner"'s house. Freeing the way and reducing harassment is the best choice, and it is also a basic outdoor character.

5) Do not camp on the floodplain, the middle of the river, the inner side of the river turn, or the confluence of small rivers to prevent sudden floods; camp on the shore of the sea (river), pay attention to the traces of the tide rise and fall and the law of time;

Some rivers have power plants in the upper reaches of the river. During the impoundment period, the river beach is wide and the water flow is small. Once the water is released, the river beach will be full; the inner side of the river turns, it is more likely to be dangerously washed away when there is a sudden flood; camping on the sea (river) bank is necessary Pay attention to observe the traces of the tide, the camp must be higher than the water mark line, and calculate and pay attention to the high and low times of the tide of the day.

6) Do not camp in the middle of the valley, low-lying places at the bottom of the valley, or in the middle of the stream;

Rainfall in the upper reaches and the release of water from reservoirs, flash flood attacks will cause mass disasters; some streams have a small flow at ordinary times, but once heavy rains occur, there may be floods or flash floods, especially in the rainy season and flash flood-prone areas. Pay more attention to prevention. Choose to camp in the middle or middle of the river (stream) valley with a relatively protruding boulder or highland platform. Due to heavy rains upstream, drowning and death by mountain torrents occur every year.

7) When camping in remote areas, you must understand and follow local customs and habits, and be sure to pay attention to public security warnings. Many outdoor travel enthusiasts like to travel and camp in areas with rich natural resources and beautiful environments in the northwest of our country. Due to the uneven development between regions in our country, the current economic development gap between the east and the west is relatively large. Therefore, when we go to the western region to participate in outdoor travel, we must understand and respect the local customs and culture when choosing campsites for outdoor life. We also need to learn more about the past security conflicts and interpersonal conflicts in the planned camping area to avoid such risks. The resulting personal injuries and property losses.
