First of all, pay attention to the season and the activity to choose the appropriate clothing, for example, if you play in the water, you must have a change of dry clothes; if you climb the mountain, it is best to wear breathable pants. In any case, the climate in the mountains is very changeable, so even in summer, it is important to have warm outerwear.
For winter camping, it is recommended to dress in onion style and wear multiple layers of thin clothing. Clothing that wicks away moisture and sweat is practical, and don't forget a thin long-sleeved top to protect you from both insects and the sun. If you have children, it is recommended to bring a raincoat, and a pair of shoes that are not afraid of water is practical for both children and adults!
Advice: summer thin long-sleeved outerwear must be brought, winter a good windproof jacket can offset more than one.
The most basic bedding is to cover your body and lay on the ground. Even in summer, many mountain camps can be very cold at night.

A lot of outdoor control is to vacuum their own down comforter to take out, sleeping bags are also very easy to rent equipment, the initial purchase is not too big a problem.
