One of the best spots to explore the Thar desert ecosystem and wildlife, the Desert National Park is an amalgamation of rolling sand dunes, jagged rocks and dense salt lakes. Situated between the districts of Jaisalmer and Barmer, the protected area is amongst the largest in the country with a total area close to about 3,162 sq km. Lying in the midst of the remote Thar desert, Desert National Park provides a haven to thriving populations of black bucks, chinkaras and desert foxes that can be seen here. The endangered great Indian bustard can also been seen here. During winter, migratory raptors such as Himalayan and Eurasian Griffon vultures, eastern imperial eagle and the saker falcon fly here to spend the season in warmer environs. The Desert National Park is a bird watchers paradise where you can explore the bounties of nature. In the event that you truly need to investigate the wonderful natural life at the Desert National Park in Jaisalmer then an ideal path is by setting out on a thrilling jeep safari. Camping with bonfires is another exciting activity that attracts people to the park.
