Bagan Nine Villages Biking

Bagan Nine Villages Biking

Bike through Bagan’s outskirts and explore a land of endless fields, today palm farms and rolling hills. Along the way pedal by nine villages, stopping in to see what traditional rural life is like and meet with the curious locals. This guided day trip travels along narrow lanes inaccessible to cars and buses, taking you well off the tourist trail.

Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel and transfer you to ShweHliangVillage, just south of New Bagan. Your bikes will be waiting here and after a bike fitting and trip briefing, its time to start pedaling. (Note: we recommend starting at 07.30 to enjoy the cooler early mornings!)

Warm up your legs with a 2 kilometre ride on sealed roads before turning westwards into the countryside. You’ll follow a small dirt track alongside a water supply canal for the first part of your journey. During the morning’s ride you’ll continue along this path, venturing off from time to time to explore the local villages, like Nwar Kyo, Kan Poat and Tuwin Tain. Aside from the fabulous views of rice paddies, toddy palms and distant temple spires you’ll also pass by a unique colonial-style monastery and ancient trees, like the shady tamarind tree in Let Wel village.

Around midday we’ll reach the base of the hills and bike parallel to them, affording great views of Shwe Pon Taung Pagoda and Bu Kin Pagoda. Our last village is Nat Palin where we’ll turn back on to a sealed road to head back to Bagan.

During the journey we’ll stop for a picnic lunch in a shady spot, re-fueling on delicious food while relaxing in the tranquil countryside. There will also be plenty of stops for water and photos and its likely we’ll be invited to join a local family for tea or snacks.     (L)
