Tajik yurt

Not a bad view from the living room

It’s not only Mongolia where yurts can be found. This one is in a village in Tajikistan. And it is more than 150 years old. I can’t believe that the outer walls haven’t been replaced numerous times, but it has been positioned in the same place all this time.

The temperature dips to -50C in the depths of winter so the yurt must have excellent insulation.
