Phu Wiang National Park


  • Over 100 million years ago the area of East (North East) Thailand was probably partially covered in water and was the home of Dinosaurs. Today we find evidence of this with foot prints baked in mud and other bones and skeletons.
  • Phu Wiang is home for the oldest Tyrannosaurs (125 million years ago and 60 million years before the Tyrannosaurs of North America). The Park was established in 1991 to protect these fossil sites although a lot has been plundered.
  • Phu Wiang comprises 325 square kilometres (125 square miles) of low mountains covered with deciduous forest. Phu Wiang National Park is 85 kilometers to the west of the City of Khon Kaen and accessible with very good roads. It is in Phu Wiang, Si Chomphu, Chum Phae and King Nong Na Kham of Khon Kaen.
  • The area comprises a massive crater or basin encircled by two concentric rings of hills or low mountains with the inner circle fragmented and rising to 470 meters  (1,545 feet) and with the outer circle in complete form rising to 845 meters (2,770 feet).
