    Unlike the other national parks in India, this park lies barren and is formed by sand-dunes, rocky surfaces and salt lake bottoms. The park also has some of the fixed dunes spreading throughout its length and breadth.

    Home to some of the indigenous wildlife and avifauna species, this park represents a unique ecosystem. Chinkara, Indian Fox, Hare and Desert Cat are some of the most commonly found animals in this park. Amongst the birds, the Great Indian Bustard or the state bird of Rajasthan is found in abundance in this park.
