Today’s post is part of a weekly series called “Travel Toss-Up,” in which we ask you to take your pick between two amazing travel experiences.

This week’s toss-up offers a choice of two exotic types of lodging.

Would you rather…

… sleep in a traditional yurt in Mongolia …

… stay in a jungle lodge in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon?

A yurt, or ger, is a tent-like structure traditionally used by the nomadic people of Mongolia; it’s constructed of wool felt over a wooden frame, and can easily be erected and collapsed when the group is ready to move on. Yurt stays are available through groups such as Stone Horse Expeditions & Travel and Legend Tour. Ecuador is home to a number of remote lodges that allow guests to get up close and personal with the jungle’s unique wildlife and plants. A few to consider include Sacha Lodge, La Selva Amazon Eco Lodge and Kapawi Ecolodge.

    I would definitely stay in a jungle lodge in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Looks so lush and relaxing and tropical!
