Visit Wadi Rum
Wadi Rum is among the most beguiling places for Jordan travel. Towering rock faces rise up from the red desert, weathered over centuries into ridges and domes. These peaks are a dramatic sight amid the surrounding dunes and flat desert terrain. Hikers and climbers are drawn to the region in order to scale these impressive rock formations.
Lawrence of Arabia, who was based in the Valley of the Moon, called Wadi Rum ‘vast, echoing and God-like'. A fitting description for this empty, haunting and beautiful wilderness region, beset with canyons and watering holes. In springtime the desert blooms with green.
Guided desert tours can be made on camels or in four-wheel-drive vehicles with local Bedouins. Tours take in the Burdah Rock Bridge and the Seven Pillars of Wisdom rock formations. A tranquil and magical evening sleeping under the stars in a Bedouin tent is another memorable all-inclusive Wadi Rum holiday option.
