Going camping always promises an exciting experience: we all imagine a holiday in the middle of nature, far from the noise of the city and immersed in the quiet of the woods, where silence is interrupted only by the sound of the flowing stream and the verses of the ' small inhabitants' of the forest.

Here are my top tips and advice that might be helpful in making someone else’s move a little easier to navigate.

Since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first men to stand on top of Everest in 1953, the situation one the world's highest mountain has changed dramatically.
