There are other famous wildlife sanctuaries & national parks in Rajasthan, so what makes this one different? Desert National Park is different, and therefore fascinating, because it is an example of the ecosystem of the Thar Desert. Unlike other popular wildlife sanctuaries & national parks of Rajasthan which are covered with dense forests & lushness, the landscape here is dotted with sand dunes which make their appearance at regular intervals, craggy rocks & scant vegetation.
