Yurts are truly unique and fascinating structures that have been a distinctive feature of life in Central Asia for at least three thousand years. The first written description of a yurt used as a dwelling was recorded by Herodotus of Halicarnassus, who lived in Greece between 484 and 424 BC. Yurts have been continually in use since this time as habitation for the Mongolian nomadic peoples of the Central Asian Plateau. Archaeological evidence proves that the first empire of steppe warriors in Central Asia, the Huns, who were active from the 4th to the 6th century AD, used yurts as their principal dwellings.
At TerraNostra we are delighted to have two of these fully modernized structures available for your divine explorer to enjoy! Each Yurt carries a unique energy and presence. The central sky lights bring constant light during the day and stunning stars at night. The location of the village close to a river offers the sound of the water as a peace-filled natural experience.
