A range of hills, located about 50 km North of Mandalay (in straight line). The Yetkansin area (as studied by Ma Kyu Kyu Aung, 2004) is delimited approximately by 22°21'-22°25'N and 96°04'-96°07'E.
The geology consists mainly of different marbles, migmatitic schists and gneiss, granite and calc-silicate rock. Pegmatite veins occur at the contact zone between marble and granite/metamorphic rock.

NOTE: The grid reference is placed on the highest elevation (Thabyaw Taung, 419 m).
