“It is not about the destination, but rather the journey.”
To many, the statement might seem like a hackneyed maxim, but to fearless adventurers and travellers, the adage is akin to a lifestyle.
If the sentiment rings true for you, then you are undoubtedly a fearless adventurer who has an affinity for the outdoors. In this regard, there is no better way to satisfy the penchant for intrepid escapades than to go on a camping and overlanding adventure. After all, there is nothing quite like the experience of setting off for a trip to unchartered areas and fresh trails on your 4X4. You can spend your days wandering through the remote areas of your country while your nights are spent camping under the stars. To individuals with a unique thirst for immersing themselves in the outdoors and the splendour of nature, there is no better way to go on an adventure.
However, overlanding and camping require so much more than just your dependable all-terrain vehicle that is built to weather all sorts of terrains. Apart from requiring self-reliance and independence while out in these remote areas, participants would also need an assortment of other gears designed to keep them comfortable and safe while they explore and intend to veer off the chartered grid. Luckily, for Filipino adventurers, a brand specializing in purveying camping and overlanding goods and gears has opened in the Philippines. Kovea, a leading outdoor company in Korea, has made its range of products available in the Philippines so as to furnish Filipino campers and outdoor enthusiasts with their overlanding and camping needs.
