Myelat is a historical region of the southwestern Shan State of Myanmar. Originally this region included some of the smaller states typically ruled by " Myosas" (chief of town) or " Ngwegunhmus" (silver revenue chief), buffering the plains of Burma and the ethnic Shan states further east.

The term "Myelat" is still in common use today, although the old political and administrative distinctions no longer apply.
