Today, pick up at your hotel and we bicycle to an extinct volcano, Mt.Popa, which dominates the area. Mt.Popa was for centuries where kings of central Burma made pilgrimages to confer with the sacred statues about the future of their reigns.
On the way, make a stop at the local palm wine to enjoy the ways of life and how Myanmar people from upper Myanmar make good use of the Toddy Palm trees that are grown along the fence of their farms. You can also taste the spirit distilled from the palm sugar that is made out of the toddy palm sap.
Then, continue to the abode of Nats passing by many villages on the way who live mainly from farming. Today biking is along the paved road, however, there can be some ascending parts as you approach the volcano of Mt.Popa. After the last climb, you will arrive at the town of Popa. Then, head to the local restaurant and your biking of today ends there.
