Gyelkha (rgyal kha) was one of the eighteen Gyelrong (rgyal rong) kingdoms. Gyelkha Gyelpo (rgyal kha rgyal po) was granted the title “Pacification Commissioner” (anfusi 安抚司) in 1410. In 1752 the Qing sent a military expedition against Gyelkha Gyelpo Tsangwang, and defeated him. In the region the five agricultural colonies Ganbao (甘堡屯), Zhagu (杂谷屯), Shang Mengdong (上孟董屯), Xia Mengdong (下孟董屯), and Jiuzi (九子屯) Colonies were established.
