History

Bouldering at Zoolander was then discovered by Khon Kaen Climbing Club (KKCC) in Nov 2017. Since then KKCC and its affiliates have been working hard to develop Zoolander area. KKCC has been opening trails, putting up trail head signs, mapping the boulders, developing lines, maintaining the area, and sharing topos and area information to climbers worldwide. The Zoological Park Organization (ZPO) has officially authorized the KKCC and its affiliates to climb in the area. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between ZPO and KKCC was signed in Nov 2018, making Zoolander the only climbing area in Thailand with a legitimate access authorized by a governmental agency.
