Rao Jodha Desert Rock Garden In Jodhpur
One of the most interesting places to visit in Jodhpur is the Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park , named after the king who built Mehrangarh Fort, and also Jodhpur. Unlike any of the other attractions in Jodhpur, which have well seeped into the history and Rajasthan's culture, the Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park is a unique attraction one must visit. Situated in a large area near the famous Mehrangarh fort, the park is an ecologically restored zone hoping to restore the desert ecology that once existed in the area and died out over the years. The project began in 2006 and after five years of clearing out the plant that had killed most of the diverse ecology and subsequently growing the plants that now thrive here, this park was opened for visitors in 2011.The Rao Jodha Desert Rock Park in Jodhpur boasts of multiple species of flora and fauna. There are roughly 250 species of plants found here that are indigenous to arid, desert-like conditions, some of which include trees like Rohido, Kumatiyo and Hingoto. <readmore>The park is also home to a number of animal species, and is a hotspot for birds like the Indian Cormorant, the Great Egret, and the Grey Francolin. This park is certainly a very interesting place to visit for anyone traveling to Jodhpur.

Suhasini's 6 days trip to JodhpurSightseeing - Cab was clean and driver Vijay ji helped us a lot during sightseeing especially by letting us know what to buy i.e. approx cost of a product..etc. 1. Stay at Rising Sun retreat (Mt. Abu), AR Excellency (Jodhpur) was comfortable. AR excellency staffs were polite. 2. Welcome Desert Camp (Jaisalmer) receptionist had a very adamant attitude. Apart from the complimetaries he informed us about the jeep safari into deserts costing 2500/- for which we asked him to reduce a little, he denied saying highly impossible. So, we had to opt for alternate jeep safari which we got at 1600/-. When the Welcome Desert camp guy came to know about this he was ready to reduce to 1000k suddenly! Basically, he tried to loot us with extra charge which is saddening. Later on, his behavior totally changed in negative way with us.
Bala's 7 days trip to JodhpurI chose the places I wanted to visit and had it included in itinerary. When we arrived there, the cab driver was complaining of lack of time to complete local city tour (which we were not interested a lot). I contacted Kingsland and they heard me and coordinated with the driver to take us to the places we wanted. Apart from that, the hotels were nice and comfortable. Their representative called me everyday to keep track of my trip status and also solve out any location visits. Overall, it was a great trip.. Thanks for the constant tracking and excellent customer experience..
Komarlu's 5 days trip to JodhpurI would like to thank you for helping me successfully plan and execute my vacation to Jodhpur and Udaipur. Loved the stay, the cab and driver provided. The driver (Harish) was polite and helped us with restaurants and also suggested us if we needed a guide or not. He was very well aware of the attractions and the best timings to visit them. Special thanks to Vishal for helping me plan the trip thoroughly and being patient each time I had a change.

Ramgopal's 7 days trip to JodhpurGood execution of the itinerary. Helpful and tourist friendly at all hotels .
Sandipan's 9 days trip to JodhpurThe trip was well planned and organised. All the hotels were quite good. There are few rooms of improvement. The driver was quite good in driving but has few issues. The first driver was also trying to wrap up for the day too early. We had to tell him specifically where to go, otherwise he just wanted to go back to hotel at the earliest. He was always reluctant to take us for any shopping. Whenever we asked him about the shopping market, most of the days he said "yaha utna achha koi market nahi hai" and later we had to talk to the locals to get the information. We had to tell him specifically every day for the places to shop. The last day we got a new driver, who did not wear his uniform and due to that the police had stopped us twice which took more than 30 mins. Also we asked the driver to take us to a sweet shop on the last day and he agreed, but took us directly to the airport, 2.30 hrs before the flight time. All over the trip was well managed and a memorable one. I give a 4 out of 5 Star
Niharika's 6 days trip to JodhpurIt was a great trip managed by trip sailor for jaipur and udaipur. Ankit from trip sailer and Hem chandra travel triangle was always available whenever we required them.
Gemleo's 6 days trip to JodhpurBest experience,good service and lots of good memories
Shirgaonkar's 9 days trip to JodhpurKapil Sharma from Riva Holidays guided us so well for Rajasthan Tour. I got best deal and service was up to the mark. Only one property in Udaipur was 10km away from city which was inconvenient part rest service was satisfactory. Entire Rajasthan Trip was amazing as we expected.
Sanya's 4 days trip to JodhpurThis is the first time I booked a tour via a tour operator over a travel website and was very apprehensive. But it turned out to be a good decision on my part selecting Ganesham Tours. Saurabh was very attentive and responsive from the beginning and answered any and all questions I had. From the driver to the hotels arranged all were good and he even changed hotels based on my preference. During the duration of my trip for 4D/3N, i only called saurabh once for a minor issue but apart from that the trip went smoothly. Would definitely recommend Ganesham tours & travels for any tour in Rajasthan since they are based out of Jaipur/Jodhpur. Excellent service offered at affordable rates.
Ashwini's 4 days trip to JodhpurI had booked stay and travel in Rajasthan for 6 people from Trip sailer. Jyoti was our travel agent. She was very good and was available throughout the trip. We had our hotel confirmation voucher for Jaipur stay but got to know there was no booking in our name when we went and asked in hotel reception. They arranged different hotel and travel to that hotel wasted our half a day in Jaipur. This is one of the complaint I have. The innova car we got for our journey was very old model and not well maintained. I was expecting well maintained higher model of innova. Also the driver was very irritating. For most of the sightseeing in Jaipur he used to refuse which made us call travel agent back and forth. All the hotels were good and well maintained. Thanks to Jyoti for suggesting good hotels to us.
