Waterfall, River & Opportunities Galore on 63 Hectares
63 hectares (155 acres) of off-grid land deep in the mountains south of Vilcabamba with a waterfall, river, many flat areas, pastureland, and native vegetation.
The water from both the waterfall and river comes from the Podocarpus National Park mountains meaning it is crystal clear and pure.
Dispersed throughout the land you will find flat and semi-flat areas that you can use to build or grow a variety of crops. The center of the property boasts the largest flat area of over 8 hectares. Here there is a humble wooden house, a small orchard, corn fields, and pasture land. To the east of this area there is a similarly sized semi-flat area full of native vegetation.
About 18 hectares of the land is mountainous terrain packed with lush native vegetation. Because it is near Podocarpus National Park and since there are hectares of native plants on this property, you will be able to see wild animals.
It’s a great bug-out property as it is currently only accessible by a hiking trail. It is a 15-minute walk to reach the property from the trailhead. From the trailhead, it is a 25-minute drive to the paved road and from there another 20 minutes to reach Vilcabamba.
