    Camping is fun but one can only enjoy it when you have the proper equipment to cherish those lovely moments in wilderness.

    There are several websites/pages offering good quality of camps but best option is to check reviews/quality before placing order, it should be waterproof with an extra layer to avoid harsh weathers. Chinese brands are available in market and prices starts from 2000 and goes upto 5000, Coleman and other famous brands are also available but replicas/first copy.

    Try to find best location for camping before sunset. Never heard any lion, hippo or elephant attacked any camp across the country. You must have headlamp, led torch with extra batteries, medical first aid kit and toiletries.

    Some shots while camping in Balochistan:

    Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.

    I too have been recently presented with camping. The thing is my group is only 3-4. One friend has a camp for 4-5 persons. We have individual jumbolon cut up to our sizes and sleeping bags + if it's cold, enough clothes to keep us warm and not to exceed weight as we have to carry all that on our backs. On Makra peak it was damn cold, lightly snowing so even packed up I was vibrating so in cold one might have to suffer.

    One thing I have learned is that if you are trekking or hiking keep your backpack weight as low as possible. Nearly killed me very recently on hike from raikot to fairy meadows. Only keep bear essentials. Compared to this the hike from shogran to makra seemed very pleasant and nice. raikot to FM damn nearly killed us as there is no water till the pull near tatu village.
    The men are back. @TGT.

    Iam camping from last 3-4 years. Jumbo thingy is good for thermal insulation but the only drawback is it starts to loose its shape and comfort level after a while.

    And spot on about weight thingy.

    I have recently started to sale down on weight of my bagpack which i use for my hiking. Not to mention i have a day pack as well.

    I use inflatable matt mostly as its low on weight and comfy. Recently bough a hiking camp as well for one person. Inshort one has to figure out either it will be "Camping with Hiking" or "Camping with Biking"

    Our camp at Shosar Lake (Deosai) August, 2015
    We arrived at Sheosar lake around 050 pm when weather was so pleasant and calm. But suddenly it changed into extremely cold wind and it was hard for us to mount camp in such fast wind. As per plan we had to camp at designated place adjacent to police checkpost (near Sheosar Lake) but there is a Camp Hotel as well, who's owner tried to stop us but after some discussion (tea and dinner order) he allowed us to camp there. The camp was having a flap-up window which was causing entrance of cold air as well as wind pressure, so we used tape etc. to seal it inside-out.

    We were four person comfortably adjusted in this parachute camp of Rs. 3,000/- bought from Nolakha Bazar Lahore. We were lucky to having somewhat special sleeping bags in such cold night (a product of Samad Rubber Works, Ferozepur Road Lahore),

    Its made of stuff we call "Parachute " which is water proof but to some extent. Don't know the exact shop, but you can easily find it in shops in start of Naulakha bazar, (entrance from Station side) and in mid of the bazar there is a specific lane where types of camps & Tirpal etc. are available
