overview

On this adventurous cycle through Burma, we cover varied terrain through off the beaten track trails with some awe-inspiring sights along the way. Sign up for yourself or to fundraise for a charity and experience great group camaraderie, fantastic leadership and our unmatched support leading up to the challenge. 

Our demanding 5 day cycle starts on the beautiful shores of Inle Lake, then we jump on our bikes and peddle through the tough rolling countryside past beautiful monasteries and small rural villages. We are rewarded with spectacular views including Mount Popa, an extinct volcano dramatically jutting out of the landscape, which makes for extraordinary photos as you relax after a hard day’s cycle. Continuing west, we reach one of the greatest and well-preserved ancient cities in the world, Bagan, where temples stretch as far as the eye can see. We cycle around the main sites, as well as discovering the hidden gems, before stopping for sunset views overlooking the panorama. Our challenging cycle ends descending down to the former capital of Mandalay where we celebrate our achievement together as a group. 

This fully-inclusive adventure in Burma begins as soon you register; you will receive a challenge pack with all the essentials you need to prepare. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, but we also offer pre-challenge briefings where you can meet our guides and leaders. As a team we will fly to Burma, ready to cycle our way along this fantastic itinerary!
