Ever thought of spending time in a tent? They’re easy to set up and can be used almost anywhere. Sometimes, you’d want to escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life to somewhere quiet - like a vast open space with nothing but the starry sky to keep you company, and all you need to carry along is a tent! We bet you wouldn’t want to give up that experience for anything else in the world. If you’ve made up your mind to be adventurous or you just simply love the concept of tents, here are some interesting ideas for you:
A suspended tent is one that can be hung from a pole or a tree or anything that stands. It’s lot like a hammock, but stronger, more stable and of course, covered. A suspended tent is ideal for sleeping in without having to worry about ants and insects on the ground creeping up on you in the middle of the night. It also saves you from the cold, hard ground. The prospect of sleeping in the air is in itself, marvelous. Don’t you agree?
- Climbers’ Tents
If you like trekking and climbing, this is the tent for you. Perfect for mountains, the climbers’ tent keeps the snow and cold outside and the climbers and heat inside. They are extremely effective during landslides too! While climbing can be fun, things like safety deserve more attention than the others. This type of tent, customized for the heights, ensures that.
Dome tents are rather spacious tents formed by bending two flexible poles into overlapping semicircles and attaching the sheet around them. Dome tents can be useful to accommodate more than one person and can be used in all types of terrain. They are used widely by campers and hikers. Dome tents are built to withstand severe weather conditions, such as wind and dust storms, making them some of the most strong and durable tents out there.
- Roof Top Tents
On a long drive? Well, if there’s no place to sleep around, you can set up a carbon fiber tent right on top of your car! That way, you don’t need to worry about a place to sleep - just park your car, climb on top and snooze off! Roof top tents are generally windproof, so you need not worry about being blown off in the middle of the night.
- The Float
If you really want to be different, there’s a floating tent available. This type is unique - you set it out on land, hop on and cast off! The floating tent is a fairly new concept but it really earns its place on this list. Being an inflatable, it is very easy to set up. Apart from leisurely activities, such a tent can also be used in the case of natural emergencies, like flooding. Interesting, right?
- Expedition Tents
We’ve already spoken about tents that you can set on top of your car - here’s the opposite kind. Expedition tents are special because they come with a garage. Like most other tents, they can be set up almost anywhere, but a flat ground is preferred for the two-wheeler in the adjoining garage to stand upright.
- Frame Tents
Frame tents are spacious tents built around a frame, which gives them their name. These tents, which take up the size of a small room, typically accommodate up to four people. We would recommend this if you wish to go camping with your friends. The strength of the frame makes this type of tent extremely useful in harsh climatic conditions.
This was our list of ideas that you would love. Whether you’re a camper, a mountaineer or simply someone who’s interested in architecture, you are sure to be fascinated by the concept of tents. Let us agree that we would all love a bit of adventure in our lives, so, the next time you want to be on holiday, ditch that hotel booking and go on a date with nature - away from everyone and everything, and you shall feel the difference.
