About Wadi Rum

Located in the south Jordan and described by Lawrence of Arabia in "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom", Wadi Rum is the highlight of a Jordan trip. Amazing mountains of sandstone and granite emerge from open valleys to reach heights of over 1700 meters ; and narrow canyons cut deep into the mountains, often concealing ancient rock drawings.

This desert is home to several Bedouin tribes and their goat hair tents are a feature of the landscape. Today, many Bedouin earn their living from tourism but they still retain their goatherds and traditional ways of life.

Wadi Rum still supports a variety of desert wildlife, including small populations of the Syrian wolf, striped hyena and Nubian ibex. Small mammals, insects and reptiles are more common and there are many birds too.

Some of Wadi Rum highlights:

Lawrence's spring :
Where Lawrence of Arabia reputedly washed during the Arab Revolt.

Khasali and Barragh canyons :
Deep, narrow fissure in the mountain side, containing many rock inscriptions.

Burdah and Um Fruth rock bridges :
Spectacular natural rock arches, with great view.

An Fashiyeh :
Nabatean inscriptions

Sand dunes, with white, orange or red sand
