Kut Chap (Thai: กุดจับ, pronounced [kùt t͡ɕàp]) is a district (amphoe) in the western part of Udon Thani Province, northeastern Thailand.

Geography[edit]

Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Ban Phue, Mueang Udon Thani and Nong Wua So of Udon Thani Province, Na Klang and Suwannakhuha of Nong Bua Lamphu Province

History[edit]

The minor district (king amphoe) was created on 20 July 1972, when the three tambon Kut Chap, Pa Kho, and Chiang Pheng were split off from Mueang Udon Thani District.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on 8 September 1976.[2]

Administration[edit]

The district is divided into seven sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 94 villages (muban). There are four townships (thesaban tambon), Chiang Pheng, Sang Ko, and Tan Lian each covers parts of the same-named tambon, and Kut Chap covers parts of the tambon Kut Chap and Mueang Phia. There are further seven tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
