  • Full Itinerary

    Meet your guide in central Nyaung Shwe for introductions. A bike fitting and safety briefing follow before you hop on your bike to start the tour. Cycle the local villages and countryside. Out here you'll get to witness genuine local life away from the masses. Red dirt roads open up to expansive views of the countryside that rings the lake with the surroundings and local activity dictated by seasons. We'll make sure to have some special stops along the ride to check out highlights. After moving briefly to wider roads, we'll arrive in the small town of Khaung Daing. Here we'll take a looping ride through the village seeing medieval bread kilns, tofu production, rice wine distilling, rice cracker drying and maybe some bright red chillies being bagged up for market; there will also be a chance to sample some of these specialities along the way. After exploring Khaung Daing and refuelling on local snacks we hop into a long-tail boat, along with the bikes for your first trip on the water. This trip takes us through the maze of floating gardens unique to Inle Lake. The boat will then continue towards our very own secret destination, an isolated peninsula. Arriving at the special location, we'll take to the bikes again, following a little used rural route along dirt trails, beside water channels and rice paddies, getting far off the beaten track into remote communities. Following the adventure of the countryside, we'll follow a horse-shoe like a loop returning to a different section of the lake where the long-tail boat will be waiting to take us out on the water for lunch at a local Shan house. We arrive into a quieter area of the lake among a small stilt community where we can relax and enjoy a home cooked lunch. After a short rest, we will then take to the kayaks for a laid back paddle taking us through three villages and floating tomato gardens. The long tail boat will follow us and give you complete freedom of choice about how far your adventure takes you. Following the kayak, we will return by boat to the town of Nyang Shwe.
