Wadi Rum, Wadi Rum

(4.8/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum presents a dramatic picture of desert beauty, accessible to visitors for tours and activities. The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them. Experienced climbers may also be interested in checking out rock-climbing options in the wadi. Work out when and for how long to visit Wadi Rum and other Wadi Rum attractions using our handy Wadi Rum tour planner.

  • The trip to Wadi Rum was one of the highlights of my trip to Jordan. It is amazingly beautiful! One can see the wilderness in a variety of ways, but I would recommend a trip by jeep.
