Amidst the vast ocean of sand lies the Desert National Park, a place to witness the outstanding ecosystem of the Thar Desert. Home of the endangered Great Indian Bustard, the park withholds some magnificent sights of how life flourishes in these brutal conditions.

The topography of Desert National Park supports sandy, gravelly, rocky, and compact salt lake bottoms. Despite such harsh conditions, it has an abundance of birdlife accompanied by other few wild animals. It also has fossil evidence dating back to the Jurassic Period, indicating a hot and humid climate characterized by dense forests.

With an area of more than 3000 square km, Desert National Park is the biggest in Rajasthan and offers a different experience altogether.
