We at ZenBackpacking.net are long time backpacking enthusiasts interested in backcountry and international backpacking. Along our travels, we have encountered many challenges which would have been easier to tackle with the right set of knowledge and equipment. And although the web is a great place to find information and the most popular gear and basic techniques, there seems to be lacking in certain aspects.
This site contains some basic information on backpacking, but also expands on some of the more abstract concepts, such as comprehensive look at water purification, protection against bugs, and backpack security. Knowledge of these will help keep you safe from some of the nasty things you may encounter in your travels.
We hope that you benefit from this information as much as we have.
