Geo-Tourism- A new trend


A new trend of Geo Tourism is becoming a fad with tourist visiting Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. Mehrangarh fort is established on 750 million year old volcanic rocks which made a welded tuff of the emanations that spurted out from a volcano which were carried by air and ultimately settled here.

Geologists at Jainarayan Vyas University, Jodhpur in association with Mehrangarh Museum Trust, Jodhpur and Geology Alumni Association have joined hands with each other make selfie zones for the tourist visiting it. These selfie zones will not only fulfil the desire of tourist to have a memorabilia of their visit but impart scientific information about these rocks. This is the part of conservation drive launched by these organisations where in along with promoting Geo-tourism, the visiting tourists will be discouraged to deface the rocks through  etches or colouring to maintain the beauty and uniqueness of the rocks.

This will, on one hand will conserve the rocks but will also give another reason to the tourists to visit and admire the distinctiveness of the spot and enlighten them with a rare natural phenomenon.
