Famously described by T.E Lawrence as "vast echoing and God-like" and acclaimed by many as one of the most stunning desert capes in the world. Wadi Rum is a nature-lover's paradise. Serious mountaineers relish its challenging climbs (some 1,750 meters up sheer granite and sandstone cliffs), while casual hikers enjoy the peace and tranquility of its sweeping vistas, towering rock faces and boundless empty spaces. Those of calm disposition will probably prefer a camel ride or a night under the stars in a Bedouin tent. Nature lovers will be drawn to the desert in spring time, when rains bring the greening of the hills and some thing in the region of 2,000 species of wild flower.
Options for exploring Wadi Rum include 4X4 vehicles and camel caravans.
