At Extravagant Yak transformation is one of our core values, and because travel is a life changing experience, we get to live out this core value all year long. In fact, our value for transformation is what makes us passionate about every trip we run. This makes our job one of the sweetest gigs on the planet (in our unbiased opinion).
It won't sound surprising to know that one of our favorite things in the world is hearing transformational travel stories. In light of this, we have decided to put on a writing contest to hear travel stories from around the world. The winner will move us in 1200 words or less with a story about traveling to a new place, and how that experience changed them personally. Did we mention there is a prize? The winner will enjoy a free trip to Lhasa & Everest!
It gets better. The contest itself has transformational impact that will spill over to others. The proceeds from this contest will help Extravagant Yak further the mission of Tibetpedia.com, a platform for promoting Tibetan small businesses of excellence across Tibet.
