BEDUIN ROAD HIKE
Easy hikes at the most famous site in Wadi Rum.
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.
Though our trekking guides are not all fluent in the English language, they all maintain a professional knowledge of the desert, its sites and their work.
Starting in Rum Village and ending in our fixed camp, including an hour’s long lunch and rest stop, the hike traverses the red sands of Wadi Rum valley and includes visits to the following sites of interest:
*Shalaleh Spring – a mountain spring overlooking Rum Village
*Lawrence Spring – a spring from whence Lawrence of Arabia is reputed to have drunk, also the site of ancient rock art – a typical stop for lunch, a rest and sweet Bedouin tea.
*Red Sand Dune area – make a stop to climb the sand dunes and run back down them!
*Khazali Canyon, explore the gorge in this sandstone mountain, site of ancient rock art dating to 300BC
*Jebel Al Qattar, scramble up to a mountain spring to enjoy spectacular views of the red sands of Wadi Rum
Your tour ends in our fixed camp, close to Jebel Al Qattar, where you may watch the sunset, go for a wander or relax around a 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 by 4×4 for transport onward to your next adventure!
