. Locations which are extremely commercialised and attract huge crowd are categorised as commercial locations.

There are several organisers/Travel-agents organising camping events in the same location at same time. These are the places gone viral on social media and everyone in the city has it on their To-Do-List. The camping setup is more like a lodge with cloth walls. Generally a lot of comfort facilities and activities are provided in commercial camping locations like loud music and lights, DJ, proper bedding, concrete washrooms, washbasins, tables, chairs, carpet etc . The entire region looks like a fair (mela) lighted up with music and excitement.
