Jebel Burdah Climb HIKE
Moderate climb with stunning desert views.
Our representative will meet you at the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Center and assist in your transfer to Rum Village, or we meet you at the Rest House in Wadi Rum Village when you come with your own transfer or taxi.
Here you will meet one of our professional trekking guides.
With your guide, drive south into the Protected Area to Jebel Burdah.
In this exciting route, you will ascend approximately 300 meters to Burdah Rock Bridge – a natural sandstone land form high in the mountains which affords incredible desert views. This is a relatively easy climb, requiring assistance by rope just prior to arrival at the bridge.
The trip up and back takes from 4 – 5 hours.
Upon descent, your guide will find a nice spot to enjoy lunch and a rest before heading to our fixed camp for the night.
Our fixed camp, close to Jebel Al Qattar, is a great place to go for a wander in the nearby cliffs, watch the sunset or relax around the campfire, before enjoying a traditional Bedouin dinner with tea.
After dinner, conversation often lingers late around the campfire, as we gaze up at the magnificent night sky. Your guides can also be convinced to share traditional Bedouin music and stories…
After breakfast, we will escort you back to Rum Village for transport onward to your next adventure!
