The best way to experience all the amazing sights and sounds of Burma is undoubtedly on two wheels as you can see in this short video of Mountain Kingdoms cycling tour of Burma.
This cycling holiday is aimed at leisure cyclists who want to discover the key attractions of Burma (also called Myanmar) as well as some lesser-known sights but from a different perspective. With little traffic and gently rolling landscapes, Burma is an ideal destination to explore on two wheels. Each day is taken at a relaxed pace with ample opportunity to stop, take photographs and meet the friendly, local people.
The holiday takes in many of Burma’s main cultural treasures starting with the magnificent, golden, Shwedagon Pagoda in the capital city of Yangon. Next is the vast temple complex in Bagan. With over 2,000 temples and pagodas, covering an area of around 16 square miles, a bicycle is the ideal way to explore places that are well off-the-beaten-track.
Other highlights include gentle rides along the plains of the Irrawaddy river, the undulating hills of Sagaing, U Bein’s teak bridge, the ‘cracked’ temple of Mingun and the intricately carved Hsinbyume pagoda. Along the way you will be welcomed by curious locals and smiling children delighted to meet you a share a little of their way of life.
The tour also travels to beautiful Inle Lake where, easy lakeside paths can be travelled by foot or bike whilst the floating market, and famed leg rowers can be visited on a boat ride across the tranquil waters. From Inle Lake a train ride across the impressive Gokteik Viaduct, which spans a gorge over 100m deep, takes you to the lesser visited Shan Plateau region. Here, rides along rural backroads and through remote villages will give an insight into traditional Burmese life that has hardly changed over the years.
Travel Burma by bicycle and you will discover an authentic side of this fascinating country that few visitors get to experience.
