Destination Explanations

Specialist Subject:Kyaing Tong (Keng Tung)

Isolated from the rest of Myanmar in the heart of the infamous Golden Triangle in the far east of Shan State, Kyaing Tong (pronounced Chyaing Tong) is set against a picturesque mountain backdrop. Due to the diversity in the area, including Chinese and Thai influences, Kyaing Tong has multiple spellings – including Keng Tung, Chiang Tung, Cheingtung and Kengtong.

Points of interest include the standing Buddha located near the picturesque Naung Tong lake on the west side of Kyaing Tong and One Tree Hill (Thit Ta Bin Taung in Burmese), where you will find a huge, solitary 250-year old tree and great views of the area – which are particularly attractive at sunset.
