100-400mm for Travel Photography

Hello everyone.

I've recently acquired this great lens for my FF 6D. I'm thinking about spending two weeks travelling by southern Asia (Vietnam, Myanmar).
I don't think of wild animals or birds, but I'd like start practising new techniques with a telephoto lens.

The thing is that it weights 1.700g (3,74 pounds), and I don't know if for all day hiking, visiting temples, city walks, and so on would be appropriate, or it rather will be a pain.

I also carry a 17-40mm, and a 50mm. I pick the 100-400mm above 70-200mm because I thought 70mm would not be very telephoto for a Full Frame sensor.

Thanks in advance!
