Chum Ta Bong (Thai: ชุมตาบง) is a district (amphoe) in the western part of Nakhon Sawan Province, northern Thailand.

History[edit]

The Chum Ta Bong community was established by the people from Tambon Wang Mueang, Lat Yao district in 1967. They had Mr. Bong Charawan (นายบง ชาระวัน) as their leader. The community was in Tambon Huai Nam Hom.

When the government established the minor district Mae Wong in 1992, Huai Nam Hom was included in the district. Later Huai Nam Hom was divided to be three tambon, Huai Nam Hom, Chum Ta Bong and Pang Sawan.

Becoming effective on July 1, 1997 Tambon Chum Ta Bong and Pang Sawan were separated from Mae Wong to become the minor district (King Amphoe) Chum Ta Bong.[1]

Following a decision of the Thai government on May 15, 2007, all of the 81 minor districts were to be upgraded to full districts.[2] With the publishing in the Royal Gazette on August 24 the upgrade became official .[3]

Geography[edit]
