Explore the freedom!

The route alternates between large and small roads, sometimes dusty and busy, sometimes unbelievably quiet. The stages are mostly paved, often with bumpy asphalt and several times there are unpaved tracks. Cycling is not always easy, but what you get in return is indescribably fascinating and beautiful.

Villages where life seems to have stood still alternate with busy towns. Speaking of variety, you can also take a train trip through the mountains, you will cross the river with a local ferry several times and you will take a boat trip on a beautiful lake.

And what about the special culture that Myanmar has to offer? Myanmar is called the “Golden Land” because of the many golden pagodas. The tranquility and friendliness of Buddhism leave a big mark on daily life and the landscape is dotted with temples. Especially the magical Bagan with its more than 2000 temples, pagodas, and stupas, all built between the 11th and 13th centuries, will make a big impression on you; but also the coffee plantations, paper factories and various ethnic minorities with their own culture.
The population is very nice and helpful, many people speak a little English and the food is very tasty. This makes it a wonderful country to be. You fly to Mandalay or Yangon. We will inform you about the flight options. When you have a returning flight to and from Yangon, you travel by bus (comfortable touring car, the bicycles stored at the bottom) in approx. 9 hours to Mandalay. Your cycling adventure starts from Mandalay. We are proud that we have been able to map out a cycling route through this unique, mysterious, spiritual and wonderful country. You will undoubtedly come back with memories that will stay with you for a long time!

It is an adventurous route. The road surface is mostly bumpy, there are also unpaved tracks. On several places there is road work, which can make it very dusty.
