Luxury adventure travel company, WildChina, is now accepting applications for their 2013 WildChina Explorer Grant

Since 2011, the WildChina Explorer Grant has given rise to exciting off-the-beaten-path expeditions across China.  After WildChina founder Zhang Mei’s breathtaking journey to the top of Tibet’s Mount Kailash, Mei created the WildChina Explorer Grant to inspire others to push the boundaries of their own adventures.  The WildChina Explorer Grant of up to $3000 is open to anyone and everyone; all you need is an original idea for the adventure of a lifetime in China.

Instructions and applications are available for download on WildChina’s website and will be accepted from August 13th through November 16th, 2012.
