Welcome to the home of the Mountain Turk Club
The goal of this club is to build, install and manage Turks in mountain environments of New Zealand.
A Turk (tank hut) is a lightweight, helicopter flyable mountain hut based on a large plastic water tank. Creative interior design combined with the circular shape results in a highly efficient and relaxing space that is safe in even the most extreme of storms. The name derives from the saying “Not a hut and not a yurt, not a tank so must be a Turk”. About Turks
