“Wadi Rum is vast, echoing and God-like.” – T. E. Lawrence
It’s difficult to imagine the vast desert, with no civilization as far as the eye can see, little to no vegetation and extreme temperatures. This – southern Jordan – is the land of the Bedouin, who have long embraced the unforgiving landscape. We introduce you to the most quintessential of desert-scapes, Wadi Rum, which you can explore by 4×4 Bedouin jeep. The strikingly red-hued Al Hasany Dunes are a must, particularly at sunset. You’ll make your way to the crest of the dune for a peaceful, soul-searching moment while gazing out at the otherworldly landscape and contemplating life as a nomad. Then, take things at a slightly slower pace when you explore by camel back for a day, or drift above it all by hot-air balloon.
“The Valley of the Moon”, depicted as Mars in several Hollywood feature films Wadi Rum is an Arabian fairy-tale waiting to be discovered. It is a quiet getaway of stars, sand, and sun; a perfect complement from Amman’s epicenter. Once inhabited by the Nabataeans of prehistoric times, Wadi Rum allows you to get lost in large landscapes and horizon lines. The calmness of the desert is sure calm your spirit and de-clutter your thoughts.
