Explore the best of Kanchanaburi on this three day cycling tour!
Starting in Bangkok, we first visit the sites of Kanchanaburi Town before taking the Death Railway to Kraset caves. After lunch, we start our riding at Prasat Muang Sing, a Khmer temple that dates back to the Angkorian period of the 12th Century. We will spend an afternoon riding through stunning countryside, small Thai villages and teak plantations. Day 2 is spent riding great jungle trails and red laterite roads to our jungle style lodge by the Kwai Noi river. The final day we ride through jungle to the river where we cross and visit Hellfire Pass. We continue the riding and have lunch before driving back to Bangkok via Kanchanaburi.
This tour follows a wide range of trails, including quiet back roads, red laterite jeep trails with some off-road jungle trails. The first part of the tour is relatively undemanding and requires no technical ability. The riding gradually becomes more challenging and on the final day there are some off-road descents.
We ride as a group, with experienced cycle guides setting an even pace and stop often to visit points of interest and sample some of the local food. Our support vehicle follows close behind with plenty of water. Our guides are knowledgeable on the local area and customs and explain the history, culture and local way-of-life each time we stop.
