"Inspiring on so many levels." Philippa Rees, author of 'Involution'.
"Why would anyone move into a tent and live on a mountain with no power, no water, and no permanent shelter to speak of?
Something has to have gone wrong."
Back in 2011, Atulya K Bingham ran out of money and found herself camping alone on Mud Mountain in southern Turkey. The adventure changed her relationship with nature profoundly. Eventually, she built a house out of mud, installed solar power, and lived mortgage free for five years. Then in 2016 things began to go wrong once more.
In 2012 Atulya began documenting her experiences. The Mud Mountain Blog started out as a personal log, but over the years grew into something else. Something that reached far wider. The magic of Mud Mountain touched others. This is an edited compilation of those Mud Mountain Blog articles.
About the Author
Atulya K Bingham is a novelist, blogger and natural builder. In 2011 she found herself out of funds and ended up camping in a Turkish field. There was no power or running water, and she had little outdoors survival knowledge. The experience had a profound effect on her.
Despite knowing nothing about building, Atulya gathered a team and constructed an earthbag house. She lived there on her beloved Mud Mountain until August 2016.
Atulya is now travelling the west coast of Europe with her dog, in search of her new off-grid Eden.
