The Bilauktaung includes Myinmoletkat Taung 2,072 m, the highest point of the northern section of the Tenasserim range, and, with a prominence of 1,857 m, one of the ultra prominent peaks of Southeast Asia. Other peaks are 1,531 m high Ngayanni Kyauk Taung, 1,455 m high Palan Taung and 992 m high Baulu Taung, among other similarly high summits.
The whole Bilauktaung is sparsely inhabited and covered with thick tropical rain forest. Usually the western mountainsides are more heavily forested than the eastern for they receive heavier monsoon rains.
