Additional information


Arrive in Bagan. Welcome by our guide to transfer for check in at the hotel. Tour briefing and bike fitting. Tonight we eat at a local restaurant and sleep in our comfortable Bagan Hotel.

With over forty square kilometers and thousands of pagodas, Bagan is nothing short of breath taking. We’ll cycle the ancient plain, pausing to explore primary and secondary temples. The tour include the visit to Shawesandaw Pagoda. The pagoda contains a series of five terraces, topped with a cylindrical stupa, which has a bejewelled umbrella. The pagoda was built by King Anawrahta in 1057. Then we visit Htilominlo Pahto, Gubyaukgyi temple and Winido temple. Dinner and overnight in Bagan.

Day 3: MT POPA (80 KMS)

After breakfast we set off for 55kms of cycling to Mt Popa, on a tough road made a little easier as we are now better acclimatised to the heat and humidity. Mt Popa is a volcanic plug whose surrounding Volcano walls have crumpled away and whose summit is now crowned by a temple complex. We arrive in time for lunch and those with plenty of energy can climb to the top, passing the famous monkeys along the way. After lunch we transfer one hour from Mt Popa to start our last 50km stretch of cycling to the town of Meikhtila. Here we are virtually in the centre of the country in a town that is home to The National Air Force and perhaps more interestingly the Myanmar Aerospace Engineering University!! Tonight we can relax with a glass of chilled Myanmar Beer and reflect on the challenge thus far.

Day 4: KALAW (90KMS)
This is one of our hardest cycling days as we leave the flatter plains behind and enter the hills, rising to 1350m at the old british colonial hillstation of Kalaw. The ride this morning passes through the towns of Thazi, Hlaingdet and Payangazu before we stop for lunch at the town of Yin Mar Bin. This afternoon as we climb steadily on good winding roads with changing vegetation we enter the pine forest that brings a welcome relief of cooler temperatures. We eventually arrive exhausted at our hotel in the pretty town of Kalaw and tonight we enjoy a good meal of local dishes.

Day 5: INLE LAKE (70KMS)
This morning we set off early on the main road, cycling alongside the old railway line to Aungpan and then on to the main town of Hehoe where we stop for our late morning break. From here is a fast and thrilling descent to our hotel in Nyaung Shwe where we have a late lunch. From here we cycle the last 10 flat kms to our final destination of Inle Lake. This is one of the areas of truly outstanding natural beauty in Myanmar and it rightly deserves its great popularity. Our good hotel is a great place to relax and recover from a tough week of cycling.

Breakfast at the hotel. Today we have a full free day to relax and enjoy the lake on your own. Overnight in Inle Lake.

Breakfast at the hotel. This morning we transfer to the airport for your departure flight.
