Lawrence's Spring, Wadi Rum

1.5
#6 of 6 in Wildlife in Ma'in Governorate
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Hike up to Lawrence's Spring, situated in Jordan’s scenic Valley of the Moon. The natural spring takes its name from T. E. Lawrence, or “Lawrence of Arabia,” who described the oasis in his book “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.” A popular stop on tours of the desert valley, you can reach the spring with a 4WD vehicle, or on foot by taking a relatively easy trek. Follow in Lawrence's footsteps and walk the meandering cliffside path to the spring, which forms a tiny oasis and watering hole in the arid desert landscape. Take a look at our Wadi Rum trip itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Lawrence's Spring and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • clearly for those who make a tour in the desert, this place is included in the circuit but if we prefer it to others for me you can avoid but still is desert and for that alone it's worth.

  • Always interesting to see this kind of thing... it's not the best activity in the wadi rum, it's course... water that comes out of the mountain in the desert is the paradox!...

Where to stay in Wadi Rum

Oriented towards sightseeing in the desert, Wadi Rum has no hotels, instead offering a range of campsites with Bedouin-style tents. These options range from sleeping under a thin blanket by a cave, to spending the night in a comfortable cabin. You can also put up your own tent in designated areas, although you'll miss out on the traditional meals and tea provided by many campsites. These accommodations follow a line from northeast to southwest along the dry river bed, while a number of agents organize wilder trips where you can go bivouac camping or sleep under the stars. Visitors who prefer more luxurious conditions can always opt to stay in the more touristy Aqaba area.
