Starting from Heho airport, we cycle through small local villages, pine forests and fertile agricultural fields. After lunch we head on into the hill station town of Kalaw, populated with the descendants of Indian and Nepali railway workers and soldiers who settled here during the days of British colonial rule. We cycle on a mixture of tarmac and dirt roads on our second day, and pay a visit to the ethnic villages that grow tea around Kalaw and explore this scenic area before checking in to our accommodation.On the third day of our journey we leave Kalaw quickly after breakfast for a full days cycling to Inle lake. Taking quiet country roads, leading through a number of local villages and communities, we finally arrive at the mysterious Shwe Inn Dein – a unique and atmospheric site containing more than 1,000 pagodas built during the 14th to 17th centuries.We begin our fourth day with a hearty breakfast and start by cycling before switching on to boating in the afternoon. Taking a relaxing, scenic cruise along the eastern side of Inle Lake, we head over to the small farming village of Tale Oo before heading out onto the waters once more to discover some of Inle's highlights, such as floating markets and monasteries.On our fifth and last day we are transferred to Heho Airport for one last drop-off, marking the end of our Shan Hills adventure. We ride a total of 99mi (160km) over the course of five days, making it a suitable tour for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. A support vehicle travels behind the group to support us and participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group. When the tour ends, you will be dropped off at Heho Airport for your onward journey.Total Days : 5 Days/ 4 NightsIncluded Meals: Breakfast - 4, Lunch - 4, Dinner - 4
