Tipi, Ecological tourism in Malaga, Andalusia, Spain.
A tipi (also tepeeor teepee) is a cone-shaped tent, traditionally made of animal skins upon wooden poles. A tipi is distinguished from other conical tents by the smoke flaps at the top of the structure.Historically, the tipi was used by Indigenous people of the Plains in the Great Plains and Canadian Prairies of North America, as well as by indigenous peoples of northern Europe and Asia under other names. Tipi lodges are still in use by these peoples, though now primarily for ceremonial purposes.
The tipi is durable, provides warmth and comfort in winter, is cool in the heat of summer,[and is dry during heavy rains. Tipis can be disassembled and packed away quickly when people need to relocate and can be reconstructed quickly upon settling in a new area. Historically, this portability was important to Plains Indians with their at-times nomadic lifestyle.
Our Tipi has 12 poles and a diameter of 5 meters. It stands on a wooden platform and 2-4 people on beds.
