The Airbnb listing with the Dukha reindeer herders offers guests the chance to stay in a teepee in the Taiga forest in Northern Mongolia, with guests getting “two wooden beds, sleeping bags and an open-fire stove for heating and cooking, as well as full access to the reindeer tribe’s backyard.”
So definitely not the usual Airbnb fare.
what3word comes into play because guests are asked to meet the nomadic tribe at a previously communicated three-word address at the edge of the forest.
what3word’s platform chunks the world into 57 trillion 3-by-3 meter squares — each of which has been assigned three words to act as its easier-to-share pinpoint. Using unique combinations of words for geolocation reduces the risk of confusing two similar-sounding street names, for example, and means a location can easily be shared verbally or read at a glance.
After meeting their hosts at the forest edge, guests ascend with them to the mountain to the camp — located at ///evaluate.video.nails — either on reindeer or by horse.
