New BC Eco-Resort Boasts Yurts at The GAK

    VANCOUVER, April 23 /CNW/ - Sophistication in Nature is how Scott Dunlop
proudly describes his British Columbia eco-resort. "After three years of
building the resort, we are proud to say The GAK Resort at Treasure Mountain,
an eco destination will be open for business this summer," notes Dunlop.
    The resort is located in southwestern British Columbia, only 2.5 hours
from the beautiful city of Vancouver. The resort sits on 180 acres of land in
an exclusive pristine wilderness valley nestled between 5 impressive mountain
peaks. The GAK's residents include wildlife including deer, elk, owls and bald
eagles who will be welcoming their first guests this June.
    The resort's accommodations are comprised of Canadian made, modern and
spacious yurts. The GAK is an enclave of 15 spacious yurts, a dining and
gathering yurt, and dozens of lounge areas. The Yurts which can accommodate up
to 5 guests each are entirely off-grid, powered by solar technology and
utilize composting toilets and collect rainwater for its showers. Guest yurts
feature large skylights which produce generous amounts of natural light as
well as spectacular views of the stars at night. From their own private deck,
guest can relax in a hammock, and drink in the amazing views of the 7000'
    Each element of the GAK was specifically designed to conserve energy and
maximize sustainability. The amenities, lighting, water usage and reusable
materials contribute to The GAK's commitment to environmental sustainability
and maintaining harmony with the natural surroundings.
    Summer activities include alpine hiking, yoga, fly fishing, photography,
wildlife viewing and simply connecting with nature. The area is rugged enough
for the most adventurous, yet suitable for the whole family. "The challenge I
encounter is that I am always wanting to take photos and can't put my camera
down; the area is a paradise for a photographer," notes GAK tour guide, Daniel
Del Rio.
    Dedicated to local foods and products, each meal at the GAK will be
prepared from fresh ingredients that are locally produced and organically
grown, whenever possible.
    Each aspect of the GAK has been created to limit carbon footprint while
maximizing guest's enjoyment in a refined luxurious natural setting.
