Historically built to withstand the long winters of Mongolia, the elements are easily shaken off by this crafty structure. A yurt has a low, wide, cylindrical base that is constructed with expandable sections of wooden latticework. The roof is a conical shaping of poles connected from the exterior skeleton to a central wheel that is supported by floor posts. The exterior fabric is tightly wrapped around the framework and can be several layers thick. Yurts can withstand high winds and extremely low temperatures, making them the ideal year-round glamping accommodation.
