The Extravagant Yak team did a great job for the Group. The rides were amazing and had obviously taken a great deal of effort to put together.

The guys at Extravagant Yak bent over backwards to put together the tour of a lifetime for us. It included seeing the sights in and around Lhasa, a kora around Mount Kailash, sunrise over Lake Manasarovar, and sunset at the foot of Mount Everest.

I went on a tour to an abandoned Tibetan village. It was an awesome experience. The quality of the service, hosts and camping gear was excellent. The trip was well organized but allowed for adventure and flexibility as well. Extravagant Yak really does it's research to provide incredible experiences. I highly recommend them.
I've also ridden the bamboo Simple Bikes - such a comfortable, smooth ride! Wish I could ride one every day.

With four of my friends we had a beautiful time in Tibet. Our couple of weeks here were more than we could dream off thanks to Extravagant Yak and the staff that made our trip simply amazing. Their knowledge about places, culture, people and language made our trip even more fascinating. Their kindness, flexibility and hearts to serve, made us feel not just as a customers on a tour, but as a part of a team...family, which is really rear. I highly recommend this Tour Company, knowing they will do their best to meet your expectations and make your time on the top of the world unforgettable.
Thank you Jim Hamp. You're the best :)
