Mongolian yurts have been around for centuries, and there is a reason why it still is popular even to this day. Here are 5 reasons why you should buy a Mongolian ger.
Compared with traditional houses, a mongolian ger for sale can cost only $2000. Only $2000! Compare that with an RV, and other types of housing options; it’s at least 4-5 times cheaper.
It does require some skill and knowledge to insulate it well, installing plumbing, and keeping the bugs out, but millions of people throughout Central Asia still live in yurts. Some of them are happier and content with life more than most of us are.
Portable and Compact
For experienced folk, it can take up to an hour or so to set everything up or pack. Beginners might take a bit longer, but there is no denying how fast it can be packed and unpacked.
A Ger gives you the freedom to construct your yurt in your backyard, and then somewhere out in nature for your summer vacation (assuming your country legally allows it).
All the materials used in a ger are natural and eco-friendly. Unlike plastic and synthetic material that are harmful to the environment, a Mongolian yurt mainly consists of sheep felt, wood, and canvas. Most yurts today still use the same materials that were used hundreds of years ago.
The only modern additions would perhaps be paint.
Also, unlike houses that requires a whole crew of construction workers using electricity, cement, foam, etc a Mongolian yurt doesn’t have any of the headache associated with construction. Artisans simply construct the wooden frame with simple tools and use a bit glue.
Modern day nomads are now even using solar panels to watch TV, use a fridge, and lighting with zero carbon footprint.
Unique Design and Look
There is no denying Mongolian yurts have a simple but a very unique design of its own. Other types of nomad people have their variation and style, with their chosen form of decoration and look.
The ger is your canvas, painting, or a sculpture. You can decorate it however you like from the outside and the inside. You have the freedom to express your creativity freely.
So what are you waiting for? Make it happen!
