After you have found a perfect bike (fitting for mountain bike) and a short trip briefing, you begin your adventure. The cycling time and distances may be adjusted depending on your fitness.
Warm up with a light ride on New Bagan’s main road, you may passby the Tharabar Gateand through the archaeological zone. You can choose the mountain bikes to explore smaller sandy lanes criss-crossing the zone, while the local and e-bikes are confined for dirt streets.
The visit to some of Bagan’s main temples should be a must. On your option are Dhammayangyi, the largest one, built by King Narathu in the 12th century, and Ananda, famous for its four Buddha images. Depending on your time and interest, there is the further option of exploring several less known temples around the complex. While riding through the plains, you can discover a traditional village, where you have the chance to learn about how the local livelihoods have been preserved unchanges for generations, from little things like using earthen kilns to create pottery to hand-pressing peanuts and sesames for oil.
