The Rufous-chinned Laughingthrush is distributed from north-east Pakistan eastwards along the Himalayas and into southern China and north-west Vietnam. It is found in dense undergrowth in broad-leaved forest and is rather difficult to see. It is normally found at between 600 and 2,200 metres.

It has a blackish cap with black barring on the upperparts giving a scaled appearance with bold patterns on the wings. Underparts are mostly pale grey with a distinctive rufous patch on the chin. The tail has an orange tip and a black sub-terminal band.
