Elevate your camping experience with Mongolian Yurts

A Mongolian Yurt is a circular tent that can easily be carried and effortlessly set up and dismantled.

The Mongolian Yurt may not look spacious from the outside. But inside, it is big enough for it to accommodate a big family. The time taken to construct or dismantle a yurt is between 30 minutes and 3 hours and it can accommodate between 5 to 15 people. 

For thousands of years, the Mongolian Yurt has been used as a dwelling by the nomadic groups of Central Asia, particularly Mongolia. Today, around half the population of Mongolia still live in these circular, spacious tents. 

The Yurt is a unifying symbol for “the Stans” which includes Pakistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The yurt crown’s pattern is at the centre of Kyrgyzstan’s flag’s design. Kazakhstan’s coat of arms is shaped around a yurt crown. 

The two main types of yurt are bentwood yurts and gers:

  1. Bentwood Yurts: Bentwood yurts also called Turkic yurts, are often found in Western Central Asia. They are generally steeper and taller than gers.
  2. Gers: This type is of the traditional kind. The roof slopes gently and it is made up of straight poles that are fixed to the crown.

What Makes a Mongolian Yurt Special?

  1. Yurts are known for their ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Their circular structure enables them to resist strong winds from any direction. The sloping shape of the roof doesn’t allow the wind to pull apart the roof beams.
  2. This circular shape also allows for the yurts to be quickly cooled and heated.
  3. They are easy to assemble and dismantle. This helps the herders to effortlessly move from place to place.
  4. The yurt is capable of having numerous felt coverings around it for the purpose of insulation. A warming stove is placed inside the structure for winters and during summers the food is usually cooked outside.
  5. When the rains come down, a trench is dug around the yurt so the ground doesn’t turn muddy and make the yurt unstable.
  6. The opening of the crown allows air to be circulated continuously.
  7. Yurts are used by many campers for their practical design.

Where can you find them?

A visit to Mongolia is enough for you to see many “yurt quarters” spread across major cities. Yurts are used in other parts of the world as yurt kits are easily available and it is simple to construct.  One can often find yurt camping sites in the backcountry regions of Colorado, North America, and Europe. 

The Perfect Holiday Dwelling

Picture this.

You are walking along the beach and stop to enjoy the serenity with the moon beaming down at the crashing waves and the stars twinkling to their tune. So, you set up your tent and get into your small dwelling. However, you have to hunch to move around,(that is, if you can) or just simply lie down to unwind your aching muscles. What is more? Sometimes, if the weather decides to ruin your bonfire plans, you may not be able to make fresh, hot food. You will have to calm your hunger pangs with some ready-to-eat, tasteless, refrigerated food while listening to roaring waves and winds whip around your tent. Not comfortable is it? That is why you need to carry something that is spacious enough to allow room for cooking stoves, and your hiking baggage, and for you to walk around without burdening your back.

So, what fits this criteria? A Yurt of course!
