About Akal Wood Fossil Park

Can you ever imagine to find the remains of 180-million-year old forest in a desert city? Yes, Jaisalmer amazes you with its rich heritage that comprises remnants of fallen and broken logs going back to pre-historic times. At Akal Wood Fossil Park, you get to see large fossilized tree trunks of various sizes protected by corrugated iron shelters. The biggest wood log is about 13 meters long and 1.5 meters wide. It is a place that carries an element of surprise for people of all ages. You find 25 numb trees at this attraction accompanied by centuries-old fossils. The climate was once stark hot and humid in comparison to the dry atmosphere of today. At the entrance lies a small display where you get a chance to stroke an ancient red-wood tree trunk fossil. Located 17 Km from the city of Jaisalmer, very close to Barmer Road, it is a place not to be missed by archeologists and history lovers.
