The Instant Mongolian Home

The nomadic peo­ple of Mon­go­lia don’t stay put very long. They’re always on the move. They trav­el light. And they build a yurt, their home away from home, wher­ev­er they go. The yurt (or “ger” as they call it) takes but an hour to build — some­thing that Daniel Gross­man (Nation­al Geo­graph­ic) and Julia Kumari Drap­kin (The Nature Con­ser­van­cy) cap­ture won­der­ful­ly in a two-minute time lapse video. The sound­track was record­ed at the Choi­jin Lama Tem­ple Muse­um in Ulaan­ba­tor, the Mon­go­lian cap­i­tal.
