This proposal group a set of tags for remote buildings used as shelters found in mountains or in the wild.

All share the same characteristic : They are isolated, ie public access for motorized vehicles is forbidden or impossible.

Optional owner access through restricted tracks or helicopter might still be possible.

If it is not the case, another tag like tourism=hotel, tourism=hostel or something else must be used.

This page shows an overwiew. See each individual proposal page to learn all details.
