Kengtung District

Kengtung District (Burmese: ကျိုင်းတုံခရိုင်; also spelled Kengtong) is a district of the Shan State in Myanmar. It consists of 3 towns and 1449 villages.


The district contains the following townships:

  • Kengtung Township, Kengtung is the largest, most mountainous, most easterly, and culturally the farthest from the Burmese, of all the Shan States. Geography makes approach to it from the rest of Burma difficult for it lies not only beyond the Salween across which no bridge has been built and whose eastern tributaries have cut no easy routes through the serried north-south ranges, but nearer again to the Mekong than to the Salween.
  • Mong Khet Township
  • Mong Yang Township
  • Mong La Township
  • Mat Man Township, Matman (Maman) Township became part of Hopang District instead part of Kengtung District after September 2011.
