This is the
ultimate opportunity to experience all that Wadi Rum has to offer. There
will be a combination of both the jeep and camel packages and the added
extra of the hiking and scrambling expedition. This package will
definitely give you the experience of true Bedouin life, having the
opportunity to camp out over night in either our secluded comfortable
camp sites or within the sandy isolated Rum terrains. At the end of each
day, dinner will be served around a camp fire, and festivities will
occur, with Bedouin tea, music and stories to entertain you, before you
retire to your beds.
The three day expedition will progress as follows:
1: One day hiking & scrambling
Hiking stats from the Rum village and we will process 2km due east to
the Rakebat Canyon. This Canyon is one of the easiest scrambles and
takes approximately 2hours to cross to the other side (Wadi Um Ishrin).
The canyon links to us to two large mountains both Jebel Ansraneh and
Jebel Um Ishrin. Before we actually process to these mountain scrambles
we will stop to have lunch and tradition Bedouin tea and continue our
journey once all are rested up. In the afternoon our adventure will
continue through to Wadi Um Ishrin and to the enormous hot sand dunes.
And if you are still feeling as though you can tackle these sand dunes
in the blistering heat then you will have the chance to climb them.
Following your exploits her we will hike on to the Anfashieh inscription
and then walk through the long narrow steep sided Um Rashed Canyon to a
quiet little place in which you can observe the beauty of the sun
setting over The Rum valley. Our fine hike takes us back to the camp
2: Camel tour
The tour starts immediately after breakfast, each individual will have
their own camel and we will travel directly to the amazing Burrah
canyon. This journey will take you into the heart of the Rum desert, and
before we enter the deep secluded depths of the Canyon, we will arrange
lunch and a short break. After you have recuperated, the long journey
through the Burrah Canyon will proceed until we reach Wadi Um Ishrin.
Throughout this breath taking trek you will visit some important
historical sites including Lawrence of Arabia’s house. This total trip
will take up to 7 hours to complete, before we head back to the camp
3: JEEP TOUR
The remaining sites of the Rum landscape will be explored. You will
travel with the tour guide to each destination in the Jeep, through the
rocky desert landscape where the history and relevance of the site will
be revealed. Then you will have a chance to explore that site on foot
before we move to the next point of interest. And if you’re feeling up
to it exploration might require you to climb up mountains. The following
sites within Wadi Rum will be visited:
• Nabatean Temple
• Lawrence’s Spring
• Kazali Canyon
• Little Bridge
• Um Froth rock Bridge
• Burdah Rock Bridge
Lunch: It is the location above that we will stop to have lunch and tea
before the expedition carries on any further.
• Burrah Canyon: this one of the marvels of the Rum Valley. This 6km
long canyon is an amazing place for hiking and we recommend that you
should take full advantage of it. Here you have the option to hike
across the canyon which is predominately in the shade and takes up to an
hour and half.
• Lawrence’s House
• Anfashieh Rock Inscription (Thamudic and Nabataen Rock painting)
• The Sand Dunes: a stop is made for those who wish to climb the huge
sand dunes, not to be done by the faint hearted.
The Sunset: after the long day tiresome day we will take you to an area
known for its beauty as the sun sets. Here you can watch the sky
changing color and how it affects the landscape, a tranquil serene end
to an action packed day.
