Chandel district (Pron:/ˌtʃænˈdɛl/) (formerly known as Tengnoupal district) is one of the 9 districts of Manipur state in northeastern India. As of 2011 it is the second least populous district in the state, after Tamenglong.
Initially the district comprised 3 sub-divisions: Chandel, Tengnoupal and Chakpikarong. After re-organization, the district currently comprises four sub-divisions: Moreh, Chandel, Chakpikarong and Machi.
Languages spoken include Thadou, widely spoken by majority of the Kuki tribes in the district and Aimol, a Sino-Tibetan tongue with less than 3000 speakers, written in the Latin script; and Anal, which is also Sino-Tibetan and spoken by approximately 14 000 Indians, and more in Myanmar (and which should not be confused with the Anus language).
