The Christmas itinerary ... cycling from Tibet to Burma

Due to a recent injury I'm not able to hike much at the moment, but can still ride a bike. So for Christmas I'm planning a lazy-ish ride down the Salween valley from the Tibet border to Burma.

It's a bit unadventurous of me as I've 'done' this area a lot in the past (as you can see from my previous posts). But given my current financial situation and gammy knee it's all I can manage right now. Departing 20 December - travelling solo and back to basics - no camping, just banking on finding guesthouses en route.

Hoping the weather is as mild as it was when I last visited 10 years ago. And I hope the Lisu/Tibetan Christians are still as welcoming when they celebrate Christmas ...
