What’s a Yurt?

From Ger to Modern Yurt

For the Mongolian herdsmen on the grassland steppes of central Asia yurts, or gers, have been the primary shelter for centuries. Even now, the day to day existence of many pastoral families on the Asian plateau centers on the rhythm of nature, the seasons, and life in a yurt home. Once exotic and unknown in the Americas, today yurt living continues to grow in popularity for people seeking an eco-friendly structure that provides, comfort, durability and a light footprint.
