There are four checkpoints and two night camps along the Fjällräven Classic China route.
You need to get your Trekking Pass stamped at each one.
In case of emergency and the officials have to leave the tent, the stamp will be placed outside the tent for you to stamp your Trekking Pass yourself.
During Fjällräven Classic, participants must use the designated camping areas at Mystic Lake and Stone Circle when pitching tents for the night.
We provide you with a trash bag to collect your non-human waste during the trek. And it’s vital that you use it. You’re not allowed, under any circumstances, to drop litter along the route, at checkpoints, mountain cabins or wind shelters. If you are caught doing so, you will be disqualified. We want to keep the area pristine and free from rubbish. You carry the trash bag all the way to the finish in Camel River. Weigh your Trash Bag at the finish in Camel River and you will have the chance to win great prices from Fjällräven and our partners.
You can abandon Fjällräven Classic China at any time, but due to lack of roads, you’ll still have to walk forward to that day’s campsite, where transport back to town can be arranged at your own expense. Please contact a checkpoint official to abandon the trek.
Human waste is another matter. This should not go into the trash bag.
Here are some basic rules for toilet etiquette in the wild:
Whenever toileting, keep 50 metres away from water.
Dig a six inch hole, covering over with earth when finished.
Don’t bury toilet roll or wipes – these will need to be kept with your other rubbish.
If you can’t dig a hole, you have to cover faeces with stones and bring the toilet paper with you. Important: Do never relieve yourself in or close to a water course.
At the night camps, we have provided toilet privacy shelters, and dug holes for you.
Please cover your waste with some dirt from the pile, and throw all toilet paper or wipes into the trash bag provided. DO NOT bury it in the hole.
If the hole is full, please alert a crew member and they will take steps to dig a new one.
