Day 6 alternative – Mt Popa National Park

Am now thinking on Day 6 :Bagan ->¬†Yenangyaung we should go via Mt Popa….

Just an extra 30km….and a little bit of climbing…

Bagan, Mandalay Region, Myanmar (Burma) to Yenangyaung - Google Maps


Great Kindle book on a bike trip in Myanmar

I’ve been reading this really fantastic book by Judy Bartlett and Liz Montgomery who did a bike trip in Myanmar ebook/dp/B00OYLYONU

It’s really well written and the level of detail is perfect. They did a loop starting and ending in Mandalay, which is useful for us, as we’ll start from there and the first few days of their trip (to Bagan) are the same as ours, so that is very useful in terms of places to stay etc. very tempted to try the alternative route for Day 1 that they discuss that is Inwa ->Ngazun -> Si Mee Khon ->Mingyan, and is much closer to the Ayeyarwady….
