Bike, Hike and Kayak Myanmar

This multi activity trip is the chance to mix it up on an exciting adventure in Myanmar. Our journey begins in the charming colonial city of Yangon, before flying to Mandalay on the banks of the Irrawaddy. We enjoy the view of the city from Mandalay Hill before beginning our cycling to Mount Popa and Bagan, considered by many to be the finest collection of temples in Asia. Savouring the sunrise from the upper terrace of a temple is an experience not soon forgotten. We get off the beaten track and see the real culture and traditions of Myanmar with a trek on the Shan Plateau. Kayaking on Inle Lake among the stilt houses and floating gardens of the Intha people is a wonderful experience. This adventurous itinerary combines cycling, hiking and kayaking through timeless villages with some of the most welcoming and hospitable people in the world.
