Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park, Jodhpur

4.1
#1 of 12 in Parks in Jodhpur
Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park represents part of an attempt to restore the city's ecology and plants native to rocky environments. Volcanic rock surrounds the area where a thorny weed shrub, baavlia, once wreaked environmental havoc; after years of efforts by the Khandwaliya miners, the weed-free park now opens its doors to all visitors. See the collection of native plants adapted to arid areas of the Thar Desert, and visit the nursery to learn about techniques used to grow plant life in such difficult terrains. Careful not to walk off the designated paths, so as to protect the fragile vegetation here.

  • Well organized, super clean park where curators have created the natural desert environment of the Thar Desert. Wonderful bird watching down by the water seep. Trails are clearly marked and a nice map is provided upon entrance (100 rs). Water bottles are sold at the ticket counter - make sure you take some. I went around 10 am during mid-January, and the weather was perfect although the sun still shines brightly this time of year, so wear sun protection.
  • Magnificent fort. There is lift and walking path, people can choose either to reach the top of fort. For lift, you have to buy a ticket. There is facility of audio touring the fort with audio devices that will guide you through historic information. Cafes are available, even small gift shops. You will find musicians in the fort
  • Its not any kind of garden. Its an artificial forest in the making. The directions given are not so easy to navigate through it. If you are interested in seeing some flowers and different plants, thats not the place for you. Native plants have been restored here.
  • What a beautiful place to visit for plant lovers. You can see all the desert plants well conserved here. The team members of Rao Jodha Desert Park are experts in it. They are working really hard on conserving endangered plant species. It's totally worth a visit.
