The La Sal Mountains are one of the most underrated mountain ranges in Utah. Thousands of people venture to Moab every weekend to bask in the desert sun and enjoy the unique rock formations. Very few people venture up into the La Sals, however, which makes this range a wild and desolate place.

The Geyser Pass Yurt is a beautiful yurt that is located in the heart of the range. From the yurt one has access to the massive Mount Mellenthin (12,600 feet) and many other ridgelines, peaks, and meadows. To the west lie huge views of the red rock desert below, including Canyonlands and Arches national parks. To the east sits the skyline of the extensive San Juan Mountains, making the view from Geyser Pass truly exceptional and globally unique. There are very few places in the world where you can be in a snowy mountain wilderness looking down on hundreds of miles of red rock desert. Simply put, this yurt is a must visit for mountain enthusiasts visiting Utah.

The yurt itself is very large, new, and very nice when compared to other backcountry yurts. There are two bunk beds, and the bottom bunks feature large mattresses that can easily sleep two. There is also a futon that can double as a bed. The yurt can comfortably sleep seven, but it would be easy to fit eight people with careful planning.

The Geyser Pass Yurt is located in the Manti-La Sal National Forest, so snowmobiles are allowed in all places within the mountain range. From the car it is possible to skin the access road about 3.5 miles to the yurt, but being towed in by a snowmobile is the preferred option.

If you are looking for a beautiful base camp in a remote and unique mountain range, then the Geyser Pass Yurt is a must visit. Big views, solitude, and a truly unique experience await for those adventurous enough to venture into the La Sal Mountains.
