Lawrence's Spring (Ain Shalaaleh), Wadi Rum
(1.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Hike up to Lawrence's Spring (Ain Shalaaleh), 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 (Ain Shalaaleh) and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Is a point where there is water, in the middle of a mountain, which was channeled to fuel a Bedouin camp. It is possible to climb up there to see the pickup point, but I didn't think it deserved the effort.
