Great blog Ivy, txs! and I like the idea of the tube in the ground François - would love to try and will relay the tip.Having a yurt installed on wet sand or having a large bucket of wet sand can also provide amazing cooling effect.
A couple words about more traditional designs versus modern yurts: very different, each having great qualities. When it comes to heat, the beauty of the traiditional design is that the felt

insulation

and canvas covers will stop the sun's stroke. By lifting the yurt covers at the bottom (they're not anchored) and adjusting the opening of the toono /

dome

(and the light coming in) with the top flap (urgh) you can create a natural draft. It might not beat a solid A/C, but does definitely cool the yurt.
Humidity could be an issue though and I would therefore only recommend insulating the roof.
