Wild camping - something every hiker should try at least once

There's nothing quite like a wild camp - it's an experience I'd recommend to anyone who loves walking and the outdoors. When everyone else have left the mountains you have the place to yourself - and the chance to see spectacular sunsets and sunrises and the most amazing dark and stary night skies you'll ever see if you are lucky. This particular spot is overlooking my favourite tarn in the English Lake District - Blea Tarn with Langdale Pikes in the distance. It's idyllic - and if you'd like to experience a wild camp yourself - check out my tips and camping essentials below.
