I have never had a bad time in a yurt. There’s something lovely about the gas lamps, woodburning stove to keep your group warm on the rug-strewn wooden floor. These things aid relaxation in a way that doesn’t require expensive treatments or over-enthusiastic massages. The structure is circular with the ...
