Mandalay To Bagan By Bicycle – 7 Days

Mandalay To Bagan By Bicycle – 7 Days through the sleepy heartland from pious Mandalay on the storied AyeyarwaddyRiver and we’ll visit the ancient city of Bagan, cycling amongst the thousands of pagodas, stupas, and temples that dominate the river valley that was once the center of a powerful and deeply religious empire. Riding through the countryside, we will be greeted by a warm and friendly people few tourists see or meet.

Myanmar straddles two of Asia’s great rivers below the mountainous foothills of the Himalayas. As the western gateway to Southeast Asia, the diversity of its people, culture, and topography combined with a rich history make it one of the most fascinating and beautiful countries in the region. Political problems and divisions within the country (to put it lightly), ensured that Myanmar missed out on the economic booms experienced by many of its neighbors, and it remains a rural, undeveloped nation.

Our tour cycles through the sleepy heartland from pious Mandalay on the storied AyeyarwaddyRiver and the picturesque InleLake, before flying back to the capital, Yangon. On the way we’ll visit the ancient city of Bagan, cycling amongst the thousands of pagodas, stupas, and temples that dominate the river valley that was once the center of a powerful and deeply religious empire. Riding through the countryside, we will be greeted by a warm and friendly people few tourists see or meet.
