The tour will start from Wadi Rum Village and the first stop will be at the Nabataean temple just outside the village. This will take about 15 min.
From here we continue to Lawrence’s spring, which is about 30 minutes.
This is where the camels usually hydrate and there are also some Talmudic inscriptions. We dismount the camels and have the option to either relax under Wadi Rums biggest acacia tree, or to take a small hike.
The next stop will be the sand dune. This will take around an hour to reach on camelback. Here we hike to the top of the dune and enjoy the amazing view of some of Wadi Rums most beautiful mountains.
After the sand dune we continue to the Khazali Canyon. This will take around 20 minutes to reach. This is one of the most packed places with petroglyphs and is also a very beautiful mountain.
After the canyon, your guide will choose a nice spot for you to enjoy lunch in the shade and relax for a bit. The lunch will be prepared by the guide.
After resting you will be going to Qajar Spring and the trip will be around one hour long. The Qajar Spring is located a 10 min hike up in the mountains. Through a little crack in the rock, it is possible to enter inside the mountain. The spring is visible here and the view is phenomenal. This spot is not very crowded and has cute little palm and fig trees growing.
From Qajar Spring we will ride the camels toward the cave for around 1 hour which is where you will enjoy the sunset, eat traditional bedouin cuisine and sleep under the stars.
You will start the day waking up to an excellent view over the desert.
We will prepare a bedouin breakfast for you including traditional bread baked in the bonfire, called ‘harbut’.
After eating you will be taken back to the village at 9.30.
