About this micro camping
Our yurt has been handcrafted in Mongolia in the traditional way, with natural materials like horsehair strings and sheep wool insulation. It's installed on a raised wooden platform covered with carpets, which insulates the soil and provides great comfort.
The yurt is decorated in a simple and charm way, with oriental lamps and bedside tables and a child area with puffs a small table. It has one comfortable double bed and a single additional bed, several sockets with electricity coming from our solar system and wireless internet access.
The central window located on the roof of the yurt, allows the fresh air to circulate and offers the unique experience of watching the stars from your bed.
It has a lot of charm that couples will enjoy for sure as well as families with Kids or small groups of friends who want to spend a few days of tranquility in a natural environment.
In the outside area in front of the yurt there's an outdoor child area for private use, surrounded by trees and bamboo with hammocks to take the sun or reading, shaded areas for an afternoon siesta and a table for breakfast or dinner at candlelight.

Therefore the use of hair dryers, irons, toasters or other equipment that have high power consumption is not allowed.
