We will meet at our Yangon hotel for a visit to Shwedagon Paya, Burma’s holiest religious site. We then have a welcome dinner.
Take a short flight to Heho and transfer to Kalaw. Enjoy this cool and peaceful town amidst pine trees as we ride the countryside.
Today’s journey may be long, but it’s fabulous ride down off the plateau to the shores of tranquil Inle Lake.
Discover Inle Lake onshore on our ride through villages and temples. A boat will let us cruise to Indein temples, floating gardens and Intha fishermen.
Back on land and up to Shan Plateau, we cycle dirt and paved roads to Pindaya, home to limestone caves that house thousands of Buddhas.
Discover the countryside on our way to Mandalay riding undulating trails through patchwork of fields.
Head out of the city to U Bein, the longest teak bridge in Asia, on our way to visit towns across from Irrawaddy River.
Explore Mandalay by bike starting off at the sprawling Zegyo market on our way to Shwenandaw Monastery. The rest of the day is free for exploration.
We explore the ancient Ava Kingdom and continue through fields of millet, sesame and cotton to the town of Pyinsi and transfer to Mt. Popa.
No bikes today, we’ll climb 900 stairs to the top of Popa Taung Kalat, temple most populated by revered Nats (spirits). Afternoon is yours to relax at the pool or hike the national park trails.
On an easy descent from our lofty heights, we ride through small villages and palm gardens to the temple city of Bagan.
On our bikes is the best way to discover Bagan. We cycle around the Archaeological Zone, visiting variety of temples. Catch the setting sun over the river or enjoy the sunset atop a temple.
We fly back to Yangon in the morning, viewing from the air some of the terrain we’ve covered by bike.
The morning is free for shopping at Bogyoke Aung San market before heading to the airport for your onward flight.
