Kyaukme motorbike tours & trekking 

Come and experience the natural beauty and cultural diversity of Shan State, Myanmar


Quotes Now, as already beeing a middle aged traveller meanwhile, I have been very privileged to be in a position to travel to a lot of different continents and countries all over the world for the last 3 decades. South East Asia has always been my favourite region and since my first trip to Myanmar I discovered this country as a real diamond in many ways. With Joy I did a combination of a motorbike and hiking trip and that was simply one of the best travel experiences of my life! Joy has excellent English language skills, is a very good guide, an experienced and safe motorbike driver and a nice guy. I can highly recommend a trip with him! Quotes
Experienced middle age traveller

Quotes Afgelopen vakantie in Myanmar hadden wij met ons gezin een geweldige tour met Joy. Vanuit the Northern Rock Lodge in Kyaukme vertrokken wij met voor een trip van 3 dagen naar verschillende Paulang en Shan villages. Onze beide kinderen op een eigen brommertje en mijn vrouw en ik op een cross motor. Hiermee konden we een goed eind de bergen in, waar we bij de lokale mensen thuis de nacht doorbrachten. Onze beide zonen vonden het na 4 weken vakantie in Myanmar en Thailand het hoogtepunt van hun vakantie! De combinatie met motor/brommer en wandelen is geweldig. Joy is een leuke gozer met veel ervaring en kennis, die zich uitstekend kan aanpassen aan het gezelschap.. Hij kent het gebied op zijn duimpje en heeft ons tijdens de wandelingen weg wijs gemaakt in de bijzondere leer van het Boeddhisme. Kortom een echte aanrader en belevenis niet we niet snel zullen vergeten. Een aanrader dus voor iedereen die de puurheid van Myanmar wil beleven!! Leo Verhoeff. Quotes

Een geweldige toer met Joy!

Quotes A friend I met travelling told me about Joy's tours around Kyaukme and so far it's been the best tip I've been given of Myanmar. Joy is a really friendly guy who speaks english fluently, he is willing to talk about everything about the culture of Myanmar and goes the extra mile just to make sure you have the best possible experience. We did the two day tour around the mountains where we got to meet many of the local tribes and share with them. It has definitely been one of the highlights of my Myanmar trip, I totally recommend Joy's tour to have a different and local experience in Myanmar. Quotes
Really fun motorbike trip around the mountains

Quotes I am a 50+ solo female traveler who did a combination motor bike and trekking tour with Joy in the Palaung villages outside of Kyaukme. It was a highlight my Myanmar tour. The hospitality and generosity of the locals are unforgettable. With a nod and a smile, they invite you into their homes for tea. In addition to the local dialect, Joy is fluent in English and Mandarin. If you like a vacation spot off of the beaten path, this is your answer. Quotes
Unforgettable Experience

Quotes It was my first visit in Myanmar, and Kyuakme, becoming famous for its beautiful trekking and hillside villages was an obvious stop. There are few places to stay in town, that is less expensive than other areas in Myanmar and the hospitality good. Best of all however was Joy! So friendly and knowledgable about the expanse of Kyaukme and it's surroundings. We learned so much about the minority groups in the villages by drinking tea, being welcomed into small tea plantations and homes to share stories and food. Many photographs were taken that I am happy to always remember. It was in rainy season that I was there, and with it coming and going throughout the day did not take away from the sheer fun of the adventure! Highly recommended :) All the best Joy!! You're pro-active and positive attitude is ever-inspiring. Quotes
Kyaukme's Joy

Quotes I have been on four tours with Joy now and I could still go on many more! I have been on motorbike tours in Laos and Cambodia, but Kyaukme is definitely my favorite place to go. The locals are incredibly friendly and genuinely pleased to meet you and wear the most stunning traditional costumes. The scenery is mind-blowing and, above all, Joy is a wonderful guide. He is able to speak the local languages and his English is impeccable - I thought he was American when I first spoke to him! He knows a lot about the area, the history or Myanmar and local life, as well as about Buddhism. Not only is he knowledgeable, but also extremely helpful, with a cracking sense of humour! Definitely my favorite travel experience so far, cannot recommend enough!! Quotes
Best Travel Experience to Date!

Quotes As a couple, we met Joy in Kyaukme with 4 others french people and we spent 2 days all together. The trip was awesome. We drove 3 hours on motorbike to get in the country and we walked the two days, crossing and sleeping several authentic villages with no tourist. One of the highlight was clearly the fact that we took time to see and talked to people or sharing tea with them. Joy is the perfect guide: he speaks very good english, is really friendly and explains a lot about Shan people and culture. He also knows some friends to make you a fabulous trip in the Burma countryside. Quotes
