Keng Tung is one of the country’s most remote outposts and probably the most scenic town in Shan State, located high in the Shan Hills at the center of the Golden Triangle. At one time Keng Tung was the Shan capital and this ancient city is the gateway to rugged journeys and exotic sights. More than a dozen different tribal groups live around Keng Tung; the hills and vast valleys are dotted with small villages. Living almost side by side in small communities, the groups include the Ang, Lahu Ahka, Akhu, Padaung, Shan, Chin, Lisu, Pa-O, Wa, Khun and Laui. Villages show differing stages of development and some still adhere to a very traditional way of life.
