After descending a loop of hairpins from Pyin Oo Lwin, the Hsipaw road reaches attractive Myaing Gyi, where a rickety monastery climbs a wooded hillside. Two minutes' drive further on, the roadside Wetwun Zaigone Monastery is more photogenic, with a fine array of stupas and Balinese-style pagodas behind a giant old banyan tree.
