Lawrence's Spring (Ain Shalaaleh), Wadi Rum

(1.4/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • It's located inside the desert. Can be reached on foot or by jeeps. Lawrence was spotted washing himself on the site during time he was living in Wadi Rum  more »
  • u got to go up to see it. well not a very cool place my opinon. have a beduin village near it and a tea stall where u can sit and relax and take some tea  more »
  • Few notable place though and signed for history of Jordan. One of the essential points of the route to Wadi Rum is usually one of the first in the queue. You need to dial order 50-60 m height from the stopping point auto, trail on the rock is clearly visible. The source itself looks like a puddle of condensate under one of the rocks from the difference of temperatures (day-night).
