This cycle tour through Myanmar allows you to immerse yourself in the country, away from just the well-known tourist spots. Starting with a day of riding and kayaking about the iconic Inle lake and through its bucolic stilt villages, before going off-the-radar to explore the lesser-known lake areas to the south among the Intha Tribal villages.
From there, you'll ride quiet roads through a varied landscape of mountains and plains to reach Bagan. Along the way you'll get to visit Myanmar's obscure capital of Naypyidaw, the Volcanic Mount Popa and the colonial-era village of Salay with intact British buildings from this historical time. Your guided bike trip closes with a winding ride along the Ayerawaddy River, coasting into Bagan, after seeing Myanmar in a way that few who go there will get to experience.
368 Km riding. This ride takes place on a range of terrain from paved roads, to patchy cobblestone ones and quite a lot of unpaved, but hard-packed dirt roads. We also make use of some great small trails. The distances are intended to be achievable with nothing over 70km in a day. Due to the riding surfaces and some hilly riding days, these distances will be quite satisfying for those looking for a bit of a challenge.
The shorter days at the beginning of the tour allow you to build-up to the longer ones and the pace of the itinerary in general means that you have plenty of time off the bike each day to recover for the next.
Explore the local life in Inle Lake by bike and kayak.
Take in the sunset from the top of Mount Popa, a sacred pilgrimage site with killer views.
Cycle through the mystical pagodas of Bagan and stop at some significant temples.
