Under British rule Kanpetlet was one of the two districts in the Chin Hills. However, due to its isolated location and lack of large enough population to support development, it has become one of the least developed townships in Chin State and Myanmar.

Kan Pet LetEdit

Kan Pet Let is the home town of southern Chin tribes of Dai, Da Yindu, Uppu, Mun and Ng'gha clans. It can be found especially in ancient Burmese official literature. Around its own border there are Saw, Mindat, Paletwa, Setottayar and Minpyar township.
