The Virginia Lakes Yurt
The Virginia Lakes Yurt is located approximately 5 miles from Hwy 395 and the seasonal road closure. The road to leading to the Virginia Lakes Yurt may or may not be open. If the road is open, you may easily drive to within a few hundred feet of the Yurt. Trips will meet at Conway Summit (Hwy 395 X Virginia Lakes Rd)
Our yurt is a modern adaptation of the ancient shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. The compact shape of the yurt and combination of lightweight members in tension and compression mean that the structure is highly efficient in maximizing strength while minimizing the use of materials. The yurt was positioned and located with safety and ease of access in mind. Its location is protected from the Sierra storms but is also sunny, with majestic Sierra views. The yurt is equipped with a pellet fuel stove, Goal Zero Power, 6 bunk beds with pads, a large family-style table, and dual burner cook stove/island. The kitchen is stocked with everything we need including a pizza over. The toilet is conveniently located about 200 feet from the yurt and protected from the elements.
