Is There Any Particular Time For Camping?

Is there a specific time for camping? It can differ from person to person’s preference and, numerous factors influence someone’s preference of time of camping. Factors like weather, location, flora, fauna and particular specifications can affect one’s selection of time to camp. We will be targeting several concepts, including the factors mentioned above.

What Is Camping?

Camping, in simple words, can be defined as setting a shelter of any kind in the selected location, which can be near a waterfall, a forest, open ground, or anywhere under the stars with a campfire to keep us warm and the kind of snacks or food items which are quick to cook-enjoying a little music and jamming sessions. Staring at the crystal-clear sky and letting the starlight rain on you. Camping is any ambiance that you set for yourselves in the outdoors and have fun. We are pretty sure that to have fun and have the time of your lives, you don’t need a particular time. (Kelk, N., 1994)

Factors That Influences Timing For Camping

There are several factors that influence the timing of camping, which will be elaborated on in detail in the below paragraphs.

Weather 

Weather is the first thing to consider from the significant factors that affect an individual’s selection of time to camp in some areas. Camping in colder regions is mainly preferred to explore in May and April when the temperature is bearable and at the same time enjoyable. And locations with high temperatures are best to be explored in December and January. While some places are only to be explored in the rainy seasons as only the rains can do justice to the locations. While sometimes rains can be unpleasant, but it doesn’t have to be dangerous or miserable. This is how weather influences the timing of camping.

Location

An exact camping set-up to begin

The location is just next to the weather in consideration when planning a camp with affects the timing of camping. Some locations thrive the best at a particular period, like the butterfly valley, which blooms only four months in a year, or The Tso Moriri Lake, Ladakh. It is the highest lake situated in Ladakh. The best time to visit and camp at Tso Moriri lake is September, as the climate in September is most likely to do justice to the location and the campers. Several campsites provide proper tents with washrooms, entities, and campfires. And that’s how locations play their role in influencing the time of camping.

Flaura And Fauna

Flora and fauna of some specific locations are significant attractions for people as we know that certain flowers bloom during only a certain period of time and then deflower, so for many campers, the goal is to have a sight of these flowers and experience them by smelling and feeling the texture of these once in a year blooming flowers.

Conclusion

To conclude, you don’t need a specific time to go camping as the real meaning of it is, for you to have fun, get a break from reality and your everyday life, for you to get away from the city pollution and lay down on the open ground and watch the magical starlight which is rare to found now. Though come factors can help get the most out of these experiences, this may cause some people to have specific timings to go camping, which is not wrong but is helpful. Camping nowadays is starting to lose its authenticity as the hospitality industries have expanded and have come up with campsites with tents while some even with AC rooms.

Rooms are something that a camper hates the most. However, there are many trek and tour companies which offer authentic camping; for instance, Trekkers Tribe is a Mumbai-based company and offers its customers absolute genuine stays, food and mainly provides camping when asked. Such companies are trying to keep authentic and original camping alive. In the end, the best time to go camping is anytime, what’s important is to take some time out for camping. (FOLEY, L.E., 1948)
