Letha Taung, also known as the Singu Plateau,[2] is a small volcanic plateau in central Burma (Myanmar).

Geography

Letha Taung is located near Nweyon, Singu Township, Pyinoolwin District, Mandalay Division, about 3 km west of National Highway 31.[3] The lavas that form the plateau originally came from fissure vents during the Holocene, although the date of the last eruption is unknown.[4]
