Yangkham Sub-district Administrative Organization
According to the legend, villagers settled down around this area considered as a thick forest with swamps and abundant crops. The area was formerly occupied by animals and elephants. Accordingly, villagers called this area as “Thoong Changkham” (the field where a herd of elephants went across). The name is slightly distorted by the passing time into “Yangkham” since then.
