Day 1: Arrive to Mandalay, check in to hotel, meet bikes and briefing. Our home in Mandalay is the Mandalay Hill Resort, premier 5 star.


Day 2: Mandalay-Kalaw  A very scenic winding road into the Shan Mountains, we ascend about 1500M on this day.    ( 3 star)

Day 4: Monastery- Namphan  We will board high speed canoes for a ride thru the canals and into Inley Lake, where we stay at the Golden Island Cottages, a floating resort, far from everything on Inley Lake. The route in is 100% off road, but short. We will visit 1000+ year old historic Indien village, home of scores of ancient pagodas as they were first built in the Inley region.    (3 Star )


Day 5: Namphan-Nyaung Schwe (Inley Lake town)   Another high and challenging off road day will see us take the long scenic route to Inley, thru ancient temples of Kakku, rarely seen by outsiders. So remote, so unknown, they were only discovered in 1999.(3 star)
