From Nyaung U the road to Mount Popa is nice and comfortable with some forests and great views. It starts flat and at a point starts to slowly reach up. Very close to Mount Popa it becomes really steep, but it is a short effort.

In reaching Popa, views of the top hill Pagoda are awesome. At the feet of the hill a man manages a motorbike parking where you can leave the bike for some kyats while visiting the Pagoda.

The Pagoda is a must for kitsch lovers and the monkeys very photogenic.

My first intention was spending the night there and reaching Magway the day after in a long stage. Instead I extended the stage to Yenangyaung. The road reaching mostly down is fast and you soon get a good average speed. In Yennagyaung, you may expect the usual Pagoda, street chaos and so on. On the way in I saw at least two motels, good enough and a few decent kiosks to have dinner.
