Kyaing Tong (Keng Tung)

Kyaing Tong (Keng Tung) is a picturesque and atmospheric town of winding streets and tiled roofs, tucked within the high, rugged mountain landscape of eastern Shan State. It is the perfect starting point for trips deeper into the relatively unexplored Golden Triangle to visit ethnic minority villages scattered throughout the hills, home to the Akha, Ann, Lisu, Lishaw, Wa and Lahu people, as well as the majority Shan people of the region. Longer treks to the border towns of Tachilek (Thailand) and Monglar (China) are possible for those looking for greater adventure and challenge.
