Day 1, Nov 10th: Arrive and tour Mandalay
We will arrange your pickup at the airport, bus station or train station and to take you to the hotel to meet your bikes and have a quick day tour of Mandalay and the surrounding area. Over dinner we will go over the trip ahead and general driving precautions in Myanmar. 

Day 2, Nov 11th: Mandalay to Pindaya
After breakfast at your hotel we head out of the congested city and up into the hills of Shan state. We will only drive on a main road for the first hour and then we will ride on relatively desolate roads all the way to Pindaya. We will cross a river and mountain on an unfinished road before climbing back up onto the Shan plateau where we will stay above 1000 meters all the way to our destination. 

Day 3, Nov 12th: Pindaya to Inle
Pindaya is famous for its Buddha filled cave so we will visit that in the morning before setting off to the East. Before we go to Inle we'll pass through Taunggyi then enter the Pa-O self-administered zone. We'll visit the Kakku Pagoda complex, then cut west over the mountains to get to Inle Lake.

Day 4, Nov 13th: Inle to Kalaw
A trip to Inle lake wouldn’t be complete without a tour on the lake so we will start the day with a boat tour of the lake's attractions. We will then take a back road through more remote villages to the hill station of Kalaw. We will stay in a quaint hotel in heavily wooded area.

Day 5, Nov 14th: Kalaw to Mount Popa
After Breakfast at our hotel we begin our day of all sealed roads to Mount Popa. We will quickly descend down winding roads until we are back to the lowlands of middle Myanmar. We will pass through the arid rolling hills and plains to get to Mt Popa in time to enjoy sunset from either our hotel or the volcanic mountain itself.

Day 6, Nov 15th: Bagan Tour
We will have a very short ride from Mt Popa to Bagan to meet our local guide.  We can either travel by motorcycle, van or horsecart depending on your preference. He will escort us around the multitude of ancient temples for the day until we retire to our hotel for the rest of the evening.

Day 7, Nov 16th: Bagan to Mandalay
Our last day of riding will be on mostly sealed roads with a few river (dry and wet) crossings before we get back to Mandalay. We'll try and get back to make it to the longest teak bridge in the world at sunset. At night we'll have a final goodbye dinner at a local BBQ buffet restaurant.

Day 8, Nov 17th: Mandalay to ?
We will meet you in the morning to help you make it to your train/bus/plane to get out of Mandalay or just say goodbye as you continue your travels on your own.
