So that you can enjoy views like these.
Let's start with the most pertinent question - what are rotating campsites?
Rotating campsites, to put simply, are not fixed. They involve moving from camp to camp, carrying tents and other ancillaries with them when they trek - and leaving behind nothing. Why are they preferable over regular fixed campsites? Read on…
1. Minimal impact on the environment
Trekking is meant to enjoy nature on the way, away from the hustle-bustle of cities and now, smaller towns alike. Would that be any fun if the very environment you travel to has become a bare patch of land with the natural grass and flora being cast aside for your permanent tents and campsites? I think not. Rotating campsites allows nature to restore itself and has no lasting or minimal impact on the surroundings.
2. Avoids overcrowding
Thanks to a trend called ‘wanderlust’, people are flocking to the mountains to juice up their Instagram stories and Facebook posts. Indubitably, to cater to the increased demand, many trekking organizations have sprung up, leading to severe overcrowding to campsites and worse, summits and passes.
