Kyaing Tong is located high in Shan Hills at the center of the Golden Triangle and just 3 hour drive from Tachileik near the Thai border. Travelers can get into Myanmar from this boarder with a valid visa in advance. Kyaing Tong is one of the country’s most remote outposts and probably the most scenic town in Shan State. At one time Kyaing Tong was the Shan capital and this ancient city is the gateway to rugged journeys and exotic sights. More than a dozens of different tribal groups live around the hills and the vast valley floor of Kyaing Tong and therefore it is more proper for those who want to enjoy the culture of ethnic groups and for real trekkers.
