Bike Your Way Around at Inle Lake

September 3, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

The best place for exciting outdoor activities in Myanmar is Shan State. The region, elevated at approximately 1000 meters above sea level, offers a cooler climate that is perfect for bicycling. Your travelers can choose between two basic options: a bike tour around Inle Lake or a bike trip from Heho airport downhill towards to Inle Lake.

The relaxing pace of these bike rides is a great way to meet people along the way. Travelers can ask their guide to have a break at a teashop, which are popular meeting places in Myanmar, to relax and enjoy some cold drinks. Inle Lake is surrounded by mountains so not only is the biking an easy, downhill ride, but there are many opportunities to stop and take photos of Inle Lake from many different angles while approaching the town of Nyaung Shwe.

New Tented Camps in Laos with Shangri Lao

Dr Paul Neis, a well known French Indochina explorer who later became the French consul in Canton, led an expedition to the Laotian highlands in 1883. Dr Neis left Luang Prabang on 11 October in that year in two light boats going up the Nam Khan river.

He travelled up the Huay Sae (“Nam Sae”) and set up camp along the Huay Sae, a mountain stream ending in the Nam Khan River. Visitors today can now travel back in time and relive those exciting days when most of Indochina was unexplored territory for outsiders. The new journey has been made possible by German entrepreneur Markus Peschke. Markus is a long time Lao resident and the founder of Tiger Trail, the Indochina Spirit restaurant and, more recently, the Elephant Village. His new project is called Shangri Lao (www.shangri-lao.com). Shangri Lao will consist of two tented camps, one nearby the current Elephant Village, where Dr. Neis and his entourage set up camp in 1883 along the Tad Sae River and one at the Tad Huay Khot, close to Xieng Ngeung village.
