Holiday Information

A cycling holiday to Burma, that will stir the senses and inspire the imagination. Our cycling begins in the beautiful hills of Shan State, with its impressive Inle Lake the focal point of our initial forays. It’s here we also take a lovely boat journey amongst the floating islands and gardens of the lake that are frequented by the Intha oarsmen.
The crisp cool air of the hill station of Kalaw is next on the agenda, before Pindaya amazes us with its ancient tales and Golden Cave Buddhas. From here the scenery changes, as bamboo and eucalyptus forests give way to cotton fields and mango plantations that line our way to Mandalay.
There’s lots to see here and during our rides we’ll visit a village specialising in traditional fan making, Mingun with its impressive stupa and giant bell and also take in the sunset at the impressive U Bein Bridge.
Back on the bikes for Bodhi Tataung for the world’s tallest Buddha, before our journey fittingly ends at Bagan. Dating back to the 11th Century Bagan bursts with amazing historic and religious sites and we’ll visit the best of them by bike.
The final day of riding sees us cycling to Mount Popa, where after a lovely day of cycling we climb (on foot) the 800 steps to its pagoda to celebrate our achievements. Back in Yangon there will be lots of time to wander around the Old Quarter, check-out its must see sights and shop to our heart’s content at the bustling Bogyoke Market.
