Kyaing Tong

Along Nong Long lake is the picturesque town of Kyaing Tong, an ancient walled city that is inhabited to this day by the Shan, the Khun, and the Thai Lue people. Pa Leng gate is all that remains of the mighty fortress that once stood there. Apart from its gorgeous lakes, you will find its terraced, green valleys of rice fields to be a true photographer's treat. You can also enjoy the variety of colorful garments and dynamic dances of its plethora of ethnic groups that reside there such as the Loi, Akha, and the Eng when trekking into its unspoiled villages.
