The road inside the park is mettled, the path leading you to the first 4 fossils is accessible by any car. If you go to the rest of fhe fossils, then I strongly recommend a 4x4... More

If you have deep interest in history or you have interest or understanding of fossil science then you can take plunge to visit this place. If you are going by your own car then there is a nominal fee and you need to drive through bad road for 1 km and there are few wood fossils inside. See them and... More

One can see 18 fossils spread over the park. The fossils are 18 million years old wood fossils, preserved by nature. A must for students and interested people.

Fabulous place if you are interested in Fossils and Archaeology or history lover... Here fossilized trees are sleeping like mummies. What I got to know from here that during Pre-Jurassic times this place used to be a forest with flowing river. More fossils are being excavated ....Will surely enhance your general knowledge..

This is one tourist destination in Jaisalmer which has hardly got any visitors. It is basically an area where wooden fossils have been discovered and the area cordoned off and converted to a fossil park. Some of the fossils have been collected together and put up for display. It is located about 18 kms from Jaisalmer and one needs to... More

Do visit this park if you are interested in fossils. Some of the oldest fossils in world..about 18 crores years old..but needs better way to present them..no display boards explaining about how the fossils were found..please meet Mr.Surinder Singh (caretaker) in the park..one of the finest person explaining about the place and fossils..
