Burma has long held a fascination to the outside world. The new redspokes itinerary from Ngang Schwe to Yangon is a journey of huge contrasts, as we travel from Inle Lake in the North to Bagan then to Ngapali Beach on the Bay of Bengal, before ending our holiday in Yangon.
This is definitely a tour for the adventurous cyclist including rough terrain and some long cycling days. At Inle Lake we encounter Hill Tribes and fishing communities in rural inland landscapes of tremendous natural beauty, experiencing traditional life in Burma. Cycling on we take in the pagodas and stupas of Bagan, dating back to the 11th Century this is one of World's most significant historic and religious sites. As we head on to the west we will encounter a coast line of unspoiled white sands framed with coconut tree palms, opening onto the cobalt blue sea of the Bay of Bengal. Saving the best until last we face the ultimate challenge of the tour with an extreme cycling challenge on rough terrain over the mountain top before heading downhill to Yangon.
