Upon arrival in Yangon, our guide will welcome and transfer you to downtown. After a short rest, let's start our visit at Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda, which is home to a 70 metre long reclining Buddha. Continue through the city, stopping as you wish to take photos. We then venture downtown to explore the city centre and its fabulous mix of architecture and sites. The streets are filled with historical buildings many of which have a faded colonial charm not seen elsewhere in Asia. We’ll start at the post office, a lovely historic building, and walk to Sule Paya, passing by the famous Strand Hotel, Mahabandoola Garden and Independence Monument. It’s onwards to Little India and Chinatown, a colorful cacophony of restaurants, temples… Late this afternoon, continue our sightseeing to the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar known as “Shwedagon Pagoda”. The central stupa is 90 meters tall and gilded with pure gold leaf.  As the sun begins to set enjoy the breathtaking views of the Pagoda and surrounding skyline before transferring to your hotel. Overnight in Yangon.

Distance of Cyling: up to 68 Km
After breakfast, we will transfer to Bago, which is located 80kms to the northeast of Yangon, and served as the capital of the Mon Kingdom of Lower Myanmar during the 15th century. Our short visit to Bago begins at Shwethalyaung Temple which houses a beautiful 55-meter long reclining Buddha. Continue to the Mon-style Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most venerated in Myanmar and whose 114 meter spire is taller than the one at Shwedagon Pagoda. We continue our transfer as far as Waw in the Mon State. From here we change to pedal power and enjoy the Burmese countryside as your surroundings alternate from small plantations and tiny villages. We will have plenty of opportunity to interact with the locals as the roadside vendors are ready to sell you anything from watermelons to gasoline.
We enjoy a local lunch along the way. Then it’s time to continue cycling until we reach the town of Kinpun, also known as ‘basecamp’ for the journey to the Golden Rock. From the base of the mountain we will be transported by a local, open-air truck along a winding road for around 45 minutes and dropped off near the top before continuing on foot to Golden Rock. A huge boulder covered by over 60 tons of gold leaf and delicately balanced on the edge of a cliff, Golden Rock is one of Myanmar's main pilgrimage sites.  The pagoda here is said to hold a hair of the Buddha and Buddhists from across the country come here to pay homage. Overnight in Kyaikhtiyo.

Distance of Cyling: up to 68 Km
This morning there is the option to visit the Golden Rock again to see the rising sun and cast its rays upon the rock. Local pilgrims gather by the rock to make offerings in the solitude of the morning. Then, return to base camp by foot and open-air truck. After breakfast, we start our ride from Kyaikhto (a 15 mins transfer from the base camp) and head southeast to Tha Hton. In the 3rd century BC, Tha Hton was the capital of the Mon State. Its port was tactically placed as it is situated directly east of Yangon, across the Gulf of Moattama. To the Burmese, however, Tha Hton is known as a spiritual land as it is the origin of the country’s specific form of Buddhism, the Theravada practice. Myanmar is the final remaining country in the world that this form of Buddhism is still practiced. Theravada Buddhism is known as the oldest form of Buddhism and today we will cycle to its ancient origins. We will arrive Thahton around noon and check in to the hotel. Overnight in Tha Hton.

Distance of Cyling: up to 68 Km
After breakfast, we begin riding to Mawlamyine, the first capital of British Burma between 1827 and 1852. Once known as Moulemein, as written by Rudyard Kipling in his poem Mandalay, the city still retains some of the atmosphere of the colonial times. We enjoy a local lunch along the way. In the afternoon, we will arrive in Mawlamyine and proceed to Mahamuni Pagoda, built in traditional Mon-style and also Kyaikthanlan Pagoda, the city's tallest and most visible stupa. Continue to the beautiful Seindon Mibaya, a wooden monastery over 100 years old. Walk along the town’s Strand Road for a glimpse of the impressive Kaladan Mosque, which was built during the colonial era when many Indians came to work for the British in Mawlamyine. To end the day we head to a temple for a view point that overlooks the town, the Thanlwin River and Belu Island as the sun sets in the background.
Tonight we savor a Traditional Mon style dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight in Mawlamyine.

Distance of Cyling: up to 50 Km
After breakfast, we ride across a new bridge called Bogyoke Aung San Bridge to Bilu Island (aka Ogre Island). Bilu Island, known as Ta Kaw Sa Man in Mon, which translates to ‘Ogre Island’. We will ride around the island passing through local villages and also have the opportunity to observe local lifestyle and visit traditional handicraft workshops producing wooden pipes, bamboo hats, rubber bands and small blackboards. Lunch at a local restaurant or a packed lunch will be provided.
After completing a full loop of the island we then return back to Mawlamyine by coach. Overnight at Mawlamyine.

Distance of Cyling: up to 77 Km
After breakfast, we will have a leisurely morning wandering around Mawlamyine and perhaps visiting the central market. We will return to our saddle and begin peddling towards Hpa An. Hpa An is a small town surrounded by beautiful limestone rock formations and is the capital of the Karen state.
En-route, first we will visit Kawhnat-Kadoe, the village of U Nar Ouk. During the colonial times, U Nar Ouk ran a local ferry boat company and fell into competition with the famed Ayeyarwaddy Flotila group. A price-war ensued, resulting in free ferry travel for all locals. This business tale is famous in Myanmar and taught in the text books of all primary school children. Visit to the monastery, built and donated by U Nar Ouk, where we still can see many ancient arts and crafts for decoration. Local lunch will be served along the way. This afternoon, we will arrive in Hpa An. Upon arrival we will transfer to the jetty and take a free boat ride across the river to the foot of Par Pu Mountain. We can take an optional 30 minute walk to the top to have stunning views of Hpa An below. Overnight in Hpa An.

Distance of Cyling: up to 54 Km
After breakfast, set off by bike to visit Shwe Yin Mhyaw Pagoda, located on the bank of Thanlwin River today. We continue to Hpa An market, a vibrant place selling fresh vegetables, meats and household goods. We then continue cycle until we reach Eindu village where we rest and have lunch. In the afternoon, we ride to Saddan Cave for some exploration, a natural cave that can be traversed by a 20 minute walk through a long dark tunnel (there is Electricity) until we reach the light of day. From the exit we take a short canoe ride passing under a stone cave and amongst endless paddy fields surrounded by lush landscape. Afterwards, we continue to Lumbini Garden home of a thousand of Buddha Images located at the base of Mt. Zwekabin, this uniquely-shaped mountain is important for local Karen people. Next up is Kyauk Kalatt Pagoda, which is built on layers of natural rock formations and Flanked by a Lake. The scenery guarantees a great photo opportunity. We’ll witness a splendid sunset at Kyauk Kalatt Pagoda. After sunset we ride back to hotel. Overnight in Hpa An.

After breakfast, spend this morning relaxing and resting our legs and then drive back to Yangon. On the way we visit Kawgun Cave, two miles from Hpa An township. It’s a natural limestone cave and measures 200 feet high and 300 feet in length. Inside the cave there are thousands of Buddha images of various sizes and shapes in ancient styles, carved out of the stone. The scenery is amazing as we travel through the countryside and small townships. Lunch en-route at local restaurant. Upon arrival at Yangon, transfer to hotel. Overnight in Yangon.

After breakfast, we explore downtown Yangon on foot, through streets filled with faded colonial atmosphere and bustling local markets. Before we leave to the airport, we may have time to visit the Bogyoke Market. Bogyoke Market, formerly known as Scott Market is the perfect place to peruse the stalls for lacquer ware, jewelry, handicrafts, and other Burmese souvenirs. Then, transfer to the airport for flight onward.
