The Cycle Myanmar (Burma) tour starts from and ends in Yangon. It is a bicycle trip that takes 14 days taking you through Inle Lake, Mandalay, Bagan and 3 other destinations in Myanmar. Cycle Myanmar (Burma) is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

In the words of Kipling, 'this is Burma and it is unlike any land you know'. This may be even truer today when we arrive on two wheels in Bagan, one of Asia’s holiest cities, giving you the chance to explore this cultural nerve centre of a country only recently emerging from international isolation. Our route takes us to the tranquil Inle Lake with its famous local markets, the striking countryside of the Shan Highlands and the central plains around Mandalay. The key sites are joined up by some fantastic rural cycling in the more remote areas where tourists are still very much a novelty and villagers will be keen to greet you on your cycling adventure.

Very interesting & active holiday
5 - Excellent
“Would recommend this trip to anyone who likes an adventurous cycling holiday. Be aware that you are up at 6 am every day to get the cycling done before the real heat sets in or to try fit in temple visits etc. Dinner is usually at 7pm and most people had collapsed into bed by 10pm.”

“Had a great time on a great well organised and fantastically staffed and supported trip. The group all got on well and everything went to plan save for a few tummy upsets and one of us taking a bath down an open drain in Mandalay.... Oops... Thankfully no serious injury but could have been a disaster so keep your eyes peeled in dark streets...”
