Did this twice - Two different trails
Jul 2021 • Friends
This was one of the things on our Jodhpur itinerary albeit slightly offbeat.
We did two separate two trails.
The first one was late morning with the sun already out and without a guide. This itself was brilliant enough for us to book another one for early morning (around sunrise) with Harsh, our brilliant guide.
Harsh took us through a beautiful trail talking about the many species of birds, plants and animals, along with their conservation efforts in the region.
Highly recommend this as a guided trip early in the morning.

The views of the fort from the trails are majestic.

Hidden Gem of Jodhpur
Feb 2021
This place is one of those hiddern gems of Jodhpur which usually doesn't fall in the tourist circuit. However, it is a must visit place not only for tourists but especially for residents of Jodhpur. With its beautiful trails serpentining through the rocks, forest, ponds and city wall this place gives you an exprerience to never forget. Not only it is a good place to walk but also a good place for bird watching and teaching your children the value of nature. And not to forget the rock presentation laid out at the entrance with different rocks found in and around Jodhpur and some old time fossils.

Have visited multiple times and am sure to visit more in future.

Interesting Place
Feb 2021 • Solo
The park focuses on ecological restoration of desert, rocky and arid land vegetation. Visit this place only if you are interested. One needs to be physically fit to take the trail and it is not suitable for senior citizens. Hire a guide here to understand the importance of this place and the ecological restoration work that has been carried out. You can have a beautiful view of Mehrangarh Fort from here.

Good trek
Apr 2021 • Family
It's good trek of easy-medium rating. The flaura and fauna is good and the different types.of rocks.

Going in April, the sun had already come up so we couldn't spend a lot of time. We did the green trail, it a little steep at some places but everybody can do it.

Directions to reach, sometimes the Google map will show the city way which might not be suitable for cars. So instead, go to Nagori circle and then search for Rao Jodha Desert Park

Open Roof Presentation of Volcano Rocks ,Raw Minerals, Plants, Lawa, Fossils .. ..
Nov 2020
Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park on the side ridge of Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur city, Rajasthan, India.

Well first of all this place is very wide and the only option to cover or trial only by foot , there is no possibility of run by battery car or trolley .

For handicap people or visitors this place is not recommended at all.

Must go on early morning or late evening time , in afternoon it is harsh weather.
The open and close time will change in different weather, must check time before go from tourist centre or from website.

Ticket - applicable

Guide Fee - applicable
( for better understand full area must take guide )

Before entrance in this area that there is no fort inside or no historical palace

Must Wear - easy clothes , proper shoes , having water bottle & umbrella

In this area you get the information of different types of soil, raw minerals and many plants , volcano rooks formation .You get more and more information about thousands years old times earth condition about that area and other thigs.
You can see different types of fossils.

You get geographical , botanical and natural process of change in environmental condition in very wide scope.

This is purely educational centre in open roof .

This is not a picnic area.

Again said , this place is not recommended for old and handicap visitors

Wonderful park with fantastic views of Jodhpur fort and beautiful natural setting. Would strongly recommend booking the 200inr guided tour which was both fascinating and informative - we were lucky to be guided by Harsh.

Peace
Feb 2020 • Couples
Away from the noise of town it is a great place to spend some time in peace. It bears an entry ticket of Rs. 100/ per person which is a little lot. There are different routes you can take to complete your walk of the garden. Stick to your route otherwise you will lose the track. They provide map at the entry but it helps just a bit. Try to go only in evening as day is very hot. Many places where beautiful pictures can be clicked. It is overall a great place to visit if in Jodhpur.

A welcome difference
Feb 2020 • Couples
Very peaceful place to escape to to get away from the hustle of town.
The ranger/ticket officer at the entrance was charming and very informative, explaining to us the routes in excellent English.
We enjoyed wandering round; the paths are well kept and views of the fort unparalleled. Not much to actually do but if you enjoy walking and a bit of serenity would really recommend.
Thank you!

You can get detailed information about this park on their website. If you are visiting it in Winters you can skip this place. The contribution these people have done towards environment is applaudable.

This is an excellent plant nursery situated near Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur. They have various types of plants which are grown in deserts. Worth visiting place.
