Desert National Park
The region is comprised of sand dunes and dry lake beds revealing the salt filled bottoms. There are thorny bushes everywhere with cacti of different varieties that are sure to amaze the nature lovers and botanists alike. The Thar Desert is a bare area, no doubt, but wildlife can be found in abundance here too.
The best way to spot the migratory birds and the endangered Great Indian Bustard along with the Griffon Vultures, Saker Falcon, Eastern Imperial Eagle and host of reptiles is to opt for a jeep or camel safari through the park. The National Park has an astounding collection of ancient fossils of the desert animals that date back to a million years. The changing landscape and out of ordinary nature makes the park a must-visit for the visitors to Jaisalmer.
Rs 100 per individual. Jeep safaris are charged extra along with camels that are offered for rides.
