- Tents should be set up on hard and flat ground as much as possible, instead of camping on river banks and dry river beds.
- The entrance of the tent should be leeward, and the tent should be far away from the hillside with rolling stones.
- To avoid flooding the tent when it rains, a drainage ditch should be dug directly below the edge of the roof.
- Use big rocks to hold down the four corners of the tent.
- Keep air circulation in the tent, and prevent fire when cooking in the tent.
- Before going to bed at night, check whether all flames have been extinguished and whether the tent is firmly fixed.
- To prevent insects from entering, sprinkle a circle of kerosene around the tent.
- It is best to face the tent to the south or southeast to see the morning sun. Try not to place the camp on ridges or mountain tops.
- At least there must be a grooved ground, not on the side of the stream, so it will not be too cold at night.
- Choose campsites with good drainage, such as sandy land, grassland, or cuttings.
The first thing to consider is safety. In the wild, many accidents can happen. In low-altitude areas, the danger is much less, but the basic camp selection must still be followed.
- Before setting up a tent, you must carefully survey the terrain. There should be no rolling stones, rolling logs and those weathered rocks above the camp. Once you find signs of scattered rocks nearby, you must not set up a tent, especially the closer the rock wall is. The more you should pay attention to the place, try to avoid camping in concave places. If you find a rolling stone, you should immediately shout loudly and inform your colleagues.
- Don’t build camps in places where debris flows frequently. Many stones have traces of being wrapped in soil, which is the main sign to identify the occurrence of mudslides. Don’t choose the campsite too close to the mudslide channel.
- Do not camp on the top of a mountain or open ground during a thunderstorm to avoid being struck by lightning.
