Understanding our challenge types


Cycling is the perfect way for us to discover the real Burma, untouched by tourism.

Taking on 360km, we will experience some of the highlights of this stunning country, which is only just re-opening its doors to tourists, including the magnificent archaeological site of Bagan where over 2,000 temples can be found!  We also explore the last royal capital, Mandalay, where we can visit the ancient monastery, the palace and much more.

This charity challenge is ideal for those looking to trail blaze!

This was my first ever challenge and most certainly won’t be my last.  Right from booking GAC were supportive, the UK team assisted with all my enquiries to ensure I chose the right challenge for me. The support team in Burma were the best right down to every little detail, like clockwork every day everything was in hand... I also loved the challenge of the varied terrain from tarmac busy roads to sandy tracks.  I would highly recommend GAC I felt safe and well cared for. Not only did I have an amazing adventure but I came home with a bunch of like minded new friends.
