Go north of Taos on NM Highway 522 or south from Colorado. Look for the small green “Lama” township sign, which is just before our turnoff, immediately north of the 15-mile marker coming from Taos, or about 4 miles south of Questa. Turn east (toward the mountains) on Taos County Road B-014 or La Lama Road, drive over the cattle guard and follow the road east for about a mile. The road will curve to the left; continue for 1/2 mile and turn right on Upper Lama Rd. Then turn right at the next fork onto Lama Foundation Rd. Continue straight for about 2 miles, then follow the road as it turns left; you’ll encounter some sharp S-curves, go through them for about a mile and a half then follow the sharp left uphill until you reach the Lama Foundation.
By Air & Public Transportation
The nearest major airport is Albuquerque. Public Transport: You can a bus from the Albuquerque airport to the main transit center. From there, take the Rail Runner from Albuquerque to Santa Fe S Capital rail station and from there then take the Taos Express or the Blue Bus to Taos. On weekdays, the Blue Bus can take you from Taos to the bus stop at the bottom of our mountain. If you can get to the bottom of our mountain, someone from Lama can drive down and pick you up.
Another option is the Taos Ski Valley Shuttle (1-800-776-1111) which can take you from the Albuquerque or Santa Fe airports to Taos. At present they operate 2 shuttles per day. You must book 48 hours in advanced to reserve a seat. For retreat arrivals via this shuttle, Lama will try to arrange a pick up in Taos. You will need to arrange a ride with Lama from Taos to Lama in advance.
