Milyanfan (Kyrgyz: Милянфан; Russian: Милянфан; Dungan: Милёнчуан) is a village in the Ysyk-Ata District of the Chuy Province of Kyrgyzstan. It is located near the southern bank of the Chuy River, which forms Kyrgyzstan's border with Kazakhstan.

Most of the population are ethnic Dungans.

The village is the birth place of Sergeant Mansuz Vanahun (Russian: Мансуз Ванахун) (1907-1943), who died heroically during World War II, and was awarded, posthumously, the honorary title of Hero of Soviet Union. His house is preserved as a museum, and in 2005, his bust was unveiled in the village.[1]
