If you’re looking for the best yurts in Washington, this blog post is here to help! Yurts are large tents used by nomadic tribes in Mongolia and Central Asia for centuries.
Because these countries have harsh climates, yurts proved to be robust structures for any season – meaning that they’re great for vacations at any time of year!
Nowadays, you’ll find yurts, complete with comfortable beds, heating, and kitchen facilities, throughout the USA. Some even have hot tubs and private bathrooms with rain showers.
