Wood Fossil Park

The Akal Wood Fossil Park is a 21-hectare preserved area where the fossilized logs of trees trunks, dating back to the Jurassic period lie exposed to view.

Wood Fossil Park at Aakal, is 17 kms from the city of Jaisalmer. Lying on the Barmer Road, this park transports you back to the Jurassic period, when the whole Thar region lay under the sea. The park with 180 million-year-old fossils that are the geological landmarks for the study of the Thar Desert is any geology enthusiastís delight.

 Covering an area of about 10 sq. kms of bare hillside, the Fossil Park contains 25 petrified trunks, the largest measuring 13 m in length. This area was once heavily wooded, with non-flowering trees, such as Chir and Deodar.

About 180 million years ago, the sea gushed in and drowned it. When the sea retreated again about 36 million years ago, it left behind a fossilled forest. An impressive Fossil Park, that stands witness to the geologic upheavals that have taken place in the Thar over a long period of time, it is one of the worth-seeing places of much geological interest.
