Yurt size

Yurt size depends on the number of lattice wall panels. Yurts with six wall segments are suitable for most uses such as family events, use as a small shop and use as a hotel bungalow. If you are using your yurt in place of a tent, we recommend yurts with two or three wall panels. We also offer travel yurts that are collapsed into two duffel bags and can be carried in an average sedan.

Yurts with four and five wall panels are recommended if you plan to carry your yurt occasionally, for example, to use during festivals and events. Yurts with four and five wall panels can be carried in large SUVs, vans, and pick-ups. You will need bigger vehicle to move around yurts with six wall segments or larger.
