Must see · World heritage site · Desert · Nature / Park
A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum Protected Area 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.

  • Needless to say the place is very special and included in every tour program in Jordan for a good reason. I recommend to be there during the sunset when the rocks change their color every minute.  more »

  • I went there on 31st Dec 2018. Fortunately I saw the last sunset in Wadi rum in 2018, I almost cried there because it was really amazing view and glad to share the feelings with my new travel buddies I just met from hostel. 2 years have passed,I still keep all the photos in my phone and as my desktop wallpaper. It was one of memorable journeys in my life.After pandemic, I would like to bring my family to go again!
  • great place to see the stars, very quiet, and a nice place to pause when touring Jordan.
