Backpacking and Wild Camping for Beginners – Part 3 – Mountains!

This video is about backpacking and wild camping for beginners with the aim to help people start out and progress to camping on the mountains. This video looks at the additional backpacking gear you need and what conditions to expect when camping up high. This is Part 3 of 3. This video goes through essential hiking gear and camping gear to get you on the mountains in our national parks throughout the UK.

My favourite National Parks are The Lake District and Snowdonia. However, I still really like the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales and there are many other beautiful parks across the country to choose from. Starting out, I would recommend going to the nearest National Park to you.

Part 1 looked at the absolute basics of camping and backpacking gear.

Part 2 looked at camping further away from home and the additional camping gear you need.
