Wheel and Wine: Cycling to Red Mountain
- Half Day
Today your tour will start at either 08:00 or 13:00.

Take a break from classic sightseeing today and discover a different side of Inle Lake.

Start with a leisurely bike ride through Nyaung Shwe, the thriving trading town on the north end of Inle Lake. Pedal around the side streets of town, stopping to see warehouses piled high with tomatoes and to check out the bustling canals. There may be a chance to visit the market to see the fresh produce on sale and rub shoulders with the local shoppers.

Cycle away from town to the outskirts of Nyaung Shwe, leaving the tall concrete buildings of town behind and heading into the fields and farms. This area is home to a diverse mix of hill tribes. Be on the lookout for people from the Pa-Oh, Shan and Inthar ethnic groups in their traditional dress.

Follow the lake’s eastern shoreline south, stopping for photos and to visit villages on the way.  Then turn off the main road and climb a short hill to arrive at the entrance of Red Mountain Estate. Take a tour of the winemaking facilities and learn about this joint venture between a French wine expert and the local Pa-Oh people. Hear about the challenges of growing grapes in the Shan State and Myanmar’s nascent wine industry.

Take a seat at the hillside restaurant and begin the Inle Lake Wine tasting experience. Unwind and enjoy the fabulous views over Inle Lake while sipping tasty wine. Then it’s time to hop back on the bikes and pedal to Nyaung Shwe.
