One of the newest wacky properties to land on Airbnb is this teepee in a remote winter forest in northern Mongolia, which the listing claims is ‘the most remote Airbnb on the planet’. It belongs to a family from the Dukha tribe and guests can book to spend two to three nights in it. The family will be in a teepee next door.

This isn’t an experience for those who can’t bear to be without their home comforts – there’s no bathroom or toilet (you’ll need to use the trees for privacy) and the furniture and fittings are best described as ‘tribal’. But they do include two wooden beds and sleeping bags, plus an open-fire stove.

The meals, three a day are provided, will mainly consist of meat and noodles, so the hosts recommend bringing your own food if you have strict dietary requirements.
