Exploring Burma by bike will allow you to see and experience the very best of the country, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet the friendly locals along the way. Myanmar, as it is now known, has a varied landscape and rich cultural history, a real sense of which you can discover on a cycling tour.
If you’re keen to discover this country in South East Asia by bike then Ayuda Myanmar Travel has a range of cycling tour holidays to choose from. Our Cycling Day Tour focuses on Yangon, while we also operate another day tour around the Inle Lake. If you want a longer, fuller cycling tour then our ‘Best Bike Tour’ allows you to see most of the important tour sites in Myanmar, including the cities of Mandalay and Bagan.
Myanmar is a territory previously unexplored by outsiders, but it is now on many peoples’ ‘must-see’ destination lists. Much of Myanmar has been closed off to travellers for at least the last forty years, but now you can explore the best of what this country has to offer – and it doesn’t get much better than seeing it by bike.

Today, pick up at your hotel by our cycling team at 08:00 am, we bicycle to an extinct volcano, Mt.Popa, which dominates the area. MountPopa was for centuries where kings of central Burma made pilgrimages to confer with the sacred statues about the future of their reigns.
On the way, make a stop at the local palm wine to enjoy the ways of life and how Myanmar people from upper Myanmar make good use of the Toddy Palm trees that are grown along the fence of their farms. You can also taste the spirit distilled from the palm sugar that is made out of the toddy palm sap.
Then, continue to the abode of Nats passing by many villages on the way who live mainly from farming. Today biking is along the paved road, however, there can be some ascending parts as you approach the volcano of Mt. Popa. After the last climb, you will arrive at the town of Popa.
