A typical summer plan. Get lost in the deep mountain, build a tent and spend the night. However, there are some things to keep in mind.
Mendoza is unique to plan a camping trip to the mountain. Just 20 kilometers away we already find places suitable for our target. Landscapes are left over. With friends, as a couple or alone. The mountain will always be a good companion. However, in order not to get a bad drink, we leave you some tips.
Before, we made it clear, that here we mean camping in the deep mountain. Where there are no trees and no shade .
Summer in the mountains is treacherous. It offers high temperatures and very strong sun during the day. However, at night the thing changes and the thermometer drops considerably. That is why it is important to wear a lot of coat, no matter how exaggerated and a good sleeping bag.
There are no mosquitoes on the mountain. Temperatures are relatively low and the environment is dry. However, there are other bugs to worry about. Spiders, lizards, snakes or mice peek out very occasionally. But we must be alert. It is important to keep the tent always closed and the food at height. It is not necessary to carry some repellent against these insects and animals.
Against some rules, making a campfire on the mountain night is a real pleasure. Talking, eating and drinking together with the heat of the flames is something unique. But we must be careful, the wind is very strong in these areas . Arm the fire on earth, away from the vegetation. Build a small repair with stones. It can be stoken with dry branches, which in the mountain abound. And finally, always make sure that it is properly turned off . For this, a little water and earth will be enough. No coal should be alive, orange.
Pure and inspiring. Millions of stars at our fingertips . At height and without contamination. Better if there is no moon, for the stars shine even more.
Lots of water. Unless we make our way close to some river. In that case, the river water is the best we can consume. Melt, without any treatment. Direct from nature. But otherwise, we need to bring enough water, remembering that at height there is less oxygen pressure and we can replenish it with water. And sunscreen is key, since ultraviolet rays are more dangerous in height.
It is important to carry nuts such as almonds and nuts. But to schedule our meals, and if we travel walking, the important thing is to bring something that does not require cooking . Finally, if we venture to cook something, either you can take advantage of the heat of the campfire or you can bring small anafes and pots, which are very practical and allow us to cook whatever we want.
If the idea is to go into the mountain by walking, it is best to carry the minimum and indispensable, such as tent, sleeping bag, water and food. The rest of the accessories mentioned here depend on whether we are going to reach the camping area by car or if we are going to move on foot.
And no technology . At most some shots from the camera to capture that moment. But the rest, let it all be recorded on our retina. We must try to disconnect ourselves from our responsibilities. It's just that, in some places, there's still a sign inside the mountain. In that case, we must raise awareness and not touch the phone throughout our stay.
And so, after reading this, you're already a professional mountaineer. You are ready to enjoy the Mendoza mountain as it really should. Spending a night in it, in full and direct contact with nature.
