Yurts on the Steppe by M-EK

A view of two yurts, as seen through the brush of the steppe in western Uzbekistan. We stayed here overnight during a camel trek. A very interesting and fun experience, despite the chilly rain and smell of wet wool.

Taken between Samarkand and Bukhara, Uzbekistan, Central Asia.

I desire to glorify God through all avenues of life and bless others in the process. Taking images of what He’s created with His hands, then sharing them – unrefined, is part of my expression.

    Oh how interesting !!! I would love to do something like that. We see yurts here at campsites already set up with all of the modern amenities. Real beds, with sheets, electric space heaters…yada yada…what you did, I think, would be so much more special..

  • Go! Uzbekistan is a wonderful place from a historical perspective – truly. The people are beautiful, so hospitable. Many ancient sites to see… if you want to take a camel trek more seriously than this, you can go for weeks through Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. My hips were well out of place after a bit of a day, I must say. Our yurt… I have a friend who fancies living in one in the US. Others that live in them in Mongolia. Heaters would have been nice for the weather we were having at the time. But yeah, we got a near real experience, without having to set up/tear down camp.
