Day-by-day Itinerary
Day 1 Mandalay to Pyin U Lwin (70km ride)

Cruise around the outskirts of Mandalay to get to know your bike, before heading up into the hills towards Pyin U Lwin. Sometimes still known by its colonial-era name of Maymyo, and also called The Flower City, this charming town with its colourful botanical gardens was once the summer retreat of officials of the British Raj.

Day 2 Around Pyin U Lwin and back (100km ride)

Start your ride early, taking in the mountain roads around Pyin U Lwin; visit waterfalls, have a paddle in their waters, and see some Buddhist temples before having lunch back in town. Make your way back to Mandalay on a different, unpaved route that zigzags down through the hills to the plain below.
