Our representative meets you at the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Center to assist in your transfer to Rum Village, where your 4x4 tour begins with one of our professional driver guides. A full day’s tour covers between 8 and 12 sites, including lunch and an hour of rest time. The number of sites visited depends on the pacing you choose. The first site you will visit is the Nabatean temple. Then you will head through the small village and into the Wadi Rum protected area where your next stop will be at Lawrence’s Spring. Next, you will go to enjoy the large Red Sand Dunes piled up against the mountains. This is a great place to try sand boarding, so let us know if that is something that interests you. After this, you will head to Khazali Canyon to see the ancient rock inscriptions. Next we drive to the Little Arch, a natural formation where you can have a photo taken on top of the arch. From here we move on to Lawrence’s house which is a Nabatean era stone building remains. Your guide will then find a nice shaded spot for lunch break where you can relax a bit, eat and enjoy tea.
Following lunch, the guide will drive you to the Mushroom Rock which is a large natural formation. Then you will go to the Burdah Rock Bridge where you can see the formation at the top of the mountains. After this you will head to Abu Khashebah canyon where you can take a walk through the cool beautiful canyon. Then your guide will drive you to the Um Frouth Rock Bridge where you can climb to the top. This is a great spot to take photos.
Now it is time for the sunset. Your guide will take you to the Um Sabata area, which we think is the best place for viewing the magnificent sunset in Wadi Rum. While enjoying the sunset, you will sip the bedouin tea made over the fire. Then he will drive you back to our camp. Upon arrival at the camp, the staff will show you your tent and then you will enjoy the evening in bedouin. After your meal, conversation often lingers late around the fire, as we gaze up at the magnificent night sky.
After breakfast time, we will drive you by jeep to Jabal Rum, the second-highest point in Jordan with its highest peak at 1734 mt, rising directly above Rum valley, cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan popular for its martian landscape and rock formations. Most routes to the top require ropes and harness, although there is a trail that is achievable without equipment depending on which guide we work on that day, it is possible to sleep under the star at the top.
Before reaching the top, we will have a chance to gaze at thamudic inscriptions which are engraved on the wall. They tell us stories about the history and evolution of human activity in the Arabian Peninsula. With over 25,000 petroglyphs and over 20,000 inscriptions, mostly in Thamudic, it is also home to the wild animals who take shelter and a hunting ground for bedouin. At the top of the mountain they are surprisingly flat.
This is the toughest and hardest route in Wadi Rum since it requires 5-6 hours one way to the top, not including going back down ! Therefore, we recommend having a high physical fitness. It is not suitable for inexperienced climbers. Due to the natural limitations of this mountain and the steep level, it can be as high as 85 degrees, therefore the cost of this tour are higher. Additionally, we have around 3-5 guides for the whole Wadi Rum Protected Area who are qualified to be guides which only!
