Animal Nepal is proud to introduce Kathmandu’s first Mongolian yurt imported and donated by our corporate partner Green Architects. Anyone who is curious to see a real yurt or ger is welcome to come and see it at our office premises at Dhobighat.
The movable, circular yurt is made up of wooden poles connected by rope made from horse hair. The structure is covered with felt made from the wool of sheep and a cotton lining which gives that unique ‘back to nature’ feeling.
The founder of Green Architects Nepal, Pawan Kumar Shrestha, explains: “We have brought yurts to Nepal to be used in the tourism sector but we are even thinking of supplying it for living purposes.” According to Shrestha the yurt can also be used as housing for flood victims and temporary housing for construction labourers in remote parts of the country.
By establishing the yurt at its premises, Animal Nepal supports natural living in harmony with nature, reflected by the nomads’ house. Nomads spend their whole life migrating together with their animals.
