Montaia Basecamp is a CABIN Neighborhood nestled in the heart of the Eastern Sierra Mountains in California. With the rapid exponential growth rate of our modern technological world, we feel it’s crucially important to remain grounded and connected to the other and to the wild realm of the Earth.
This ReWilding experience is aimed towards reminding the leaders, developers, & creators of the Web3 world of how inspiring and humbling the wild world truly is. We will focus on rekindling the deep spirit of exploration, inspiration, and wonder by immersing ourselves into our surrounding environment, as well as bringing greater attention to the way our health is affected by this connection.
During this time together, we will have the best of both worlds:
1) Access to high-speed wifi during the work week (fiber optic)
2) A strong focus on reconnecting with a more natural way of life through outdoor adventures and wilderness immersions. This will include a few digital detox days, optional overnight camping trips, and weekly local volcanic hot springs soaks.
This residency is for you if...
Citizens have passports that give them access to Cabin’s coliving experiences, neighborhoods, and annual gathering. We collectively govern our city and build a network of neighborhoods from the ground up.
We are now expanding a shared culture, economy, and governance across a global network of physical neighborhoods designed for strong community, fast internet, and access to nature.
Over the past two years, our online community has designed and built a thriving coliving property called Neighborhood Zero in the Texas Hill Country. Over the next few years, our city will grow to 5,040 founding citizens—the number that Aristotle thought made for an ideal polis.
We aim to offer more affordable, more flexible, and more community oriented housing options than you can get in traditional cities.
This regenerative co-living space is designed to facilitate community living experiences. This is a space of true togetherness, where we learn to yield to the field and dance in the rhythms of life's ups and downs, weaving a tapestry of human connection.
Together, we focus on developing healthy relationships with self, with community, and with the wilderness around us.
Montaia Basecamp is nestled in the heart of the Eastern Sierra. Our back door opens into millions of acres of the Inyo National Forest, one of the most beautiful and wildest wilderness expanses in the country. There are hundreds of trails and world-class rock climbing within an hour’s drive. The closest towns are Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, California.
Come experience the wild ruggedness of the expansive Eastern Sierra mountains and discover what your mind, heart, and soul never knew it was missing!
Together we will build community ties as we weave this tapestry of connection between humans and the natural world. We will focus on developing healthy relationships with self, with community, and with the wilderness around us.

This month is aimed towards outdoor immersion with activities and experiences that may be new for some folks joining, so no one is expected to be an expert. Hiking, climbing, and camping will be what our adventures revolve around and we’ll design each trip based on the abilities of the whole group.
