Sustainable & REmote

  • Iron Knot Ranch was founded in 1999 and comprises roughly 3400 acres of mountainous, high desert terrain.
  • Remote by any standard, we are completely self-powered and off the grid.
  • Solar power provides electricity for our facilities, WiFi communications and water distribution systems.
  • In addition to the shrine room (Lha Khang in Tibetan) and BPI headquarters, there are ten casitas, several trailers, and men's and women's dorms available for retreatants and visitors.
  • A communal kitchen is provisioned, in season, by our organic vegetable and fruit gardens.
  • We do our best to keep our unpaved rural roads passable through all seasons.
