Wiang Haeng (Thai: เวียงแหง) is a district (amphoe) in the northern part of Chiang Mai Province, northern Thailand.


The area of tambon Wiang was very far from Chiang Dao district center. The government separated Tambon Mueang Haeng and Piang Luang to create a minor district (King Amphoe) on May 5, 1981.[1] It was upgraded to a full district on November 4, 1993.[2]


Neighboring districts are (from the northeast clockwise) Chiang Dao of Chiang Mai Province, Pai of Mae Hong Son Province and Shan State of Myanmar.

The source of the Taeng River lies in the mountains of the Daen Lao Range in the north of the district.


The district is subdivided into three subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 26 villages (muban). There are no municipal (thesaban) areas, and three tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
