yurt heaven

dalanzadgad

i have a fixation on yurts and the other day while i was surfing the net i went looking on google earth for some , i knew that the Mongolians use them as their main form of abode .. so i started at the capital and followed the roads out untill i came to a place called Dalanzadgad .. almost all of the town were yurts  , the satellite photos were not that good but you could see how many there were.. this was the only photo that showed the yurts at ground level

  1. Well done mate – that was a bloody good idea – to use Google I mean. Love the yurts but don’t think I’d like the surroundings. Is it desert or something?

    • the bleakness is the attraction . i read an artical somewhere
      about a guy who spent a month in one over winter on the steppes , sounds a bit hard but you only really know if you do it yourself….
