Nong Hin (Thai: หนองหิน; IPA: [nɔ̌ːŋ hǐn]) is a district (amphoe) of Loei Province, northeastern Thailand.


Neighboring districts are (from the north clockwise) Wang Saphung, Pha Khao, Phu Kradueng, and Phu Luang.


The minor district (king amphoe) was established on 1 July 1997 with territory split off from Phu Kradueng.[1]

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


The district is divided into three sub-districts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 34 villages (muban). Nong Hin is a township (thesaban tambon) which covers parts of tambon Nong Hin. There are a further three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
