Tour description Jabal Al-Hash tour

The Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash tour is for those travelers who love nature and landscapes and want to get the ‘Bedouin vibe’.

We start with the beautiful drive to the outer area of Wadi Rum. The rest of the morning, we use to hike and scramble Jabal Al-Hash and return to the jeep. At lunchtime, we serve you a Bedouin meal. In the afternoon, we go on a jeep tour to see more of the fantastic landscape. And we make stops at a Bedouin dam, a rock bridge, and Cow rock. Then we take the jeep and go to Um Sabatah where we end the day by watching the sunset. All in all, an active day in our stunningly beautiful desert.

Once it starts to get dark, we drive to our camp or our ‘cave’ where you enjoy a traditional Bedouin dinner and stay overnight. The next morning after breakfast, we return to Rum village.

The detailed Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash plan

Day 1 - Meeting point and start time

We meet each at our office in Rum village for the check-in. Together we enjoy a Bedouin tea and talk about what we have in mind for the day and night. After finishing our drink, there is time for the final preparations. Afterward, we leave Rum village to go out into the desert.

During summertime (daylight saving time), the tour starts at 10 AM (check-in at 9.30 AM), and during wintertime, the tour begins at 9 AM (check-in at 8.30 AM).

Day 1 - In the morning

By jeep, we drive through the beautiful desert to Jabal Al-Hash. The mountain is close to the border with Saudi Arabia. No matter which route your guide chooses, the hike, which includes some scrambling, is doable for anyone who is reasonably fit. The views of both the north and the south of Wadi Sabet are beautiful. You can see the difference between the red and the white sandstone. This hike also gives you a unique opportunity to discover fossils on the mountain. After taking our time to relax and enjoy the mesmerizing views, we head back to the jeep.

Day 1 - Lunchtime

We drive to a quiet and picturesque place where we take our lunch break. Your guide prepares a Bedouin lunch for you on the spot. After lunch, there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.

Because of the days being short during wintertime, we continue the tour right after lunch. Likewise, during summertime, we take an extended break to wait for the heat of the day to go.

Day 1 - In the afternoon

In the afternoon, we go on another jeep tour. We first head to a Bedouin dam. You can see how we construct dams to collect and save water for use during the dry season. Afterward, we continue to Um Ashaman where we make a stop at a rock bridge known as ‘the eye’. Then we head to another beautifully shaped rock, Cow rock. Some call this rock Chicken rock. We wonder which name you find most fit. As the sun starts to set, we head to Um Sabatah to watch the sunset.

Day 1 - The overnight stay

For your overnight stay, we offer three options.

Sleeping in a tent in our camp

Overnight stay in Wadi Rum Base Camp

After the sunset, we bring you to our camp. You get a quick explanation about what is where, how our camp works, and we show you where you will be sleeping (your tent or outside sleeping spot near our camp). All so that you can feel at home right-way.

In the communal tent, we serve you a traditional Bedouin dinner. There is no set program during the evening. You can spend time in the communal tent, or, during warm days, in the outside sitting area. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, you can talk with other guests, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.

Overnight stay 'sleeping under the stars' (bivouac camping)

After the sunset, we go to our ‘cave’ where we stay overnight. While you enjoy the stunning views from our ‘cave’ and see the nightfall (who spots the first star?), your guide cooks you a traditional Bedouin dinner.

You can spend the evening sitting and chatting around the firepit. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, you can talk with other guests, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.

Day 2 - In the morning

It is worth checking when the sun will rise (you can ask us too). Whether you sleep in our camp, near our camp, or in our ‘cave’, the sunrise is something you don’t want to miss. You can ask us for the best places where you can watch the sunrise. At 7 AM, breakfast is ready for you. Afterward, we pack our things and return to Rum village. You arrive at our office between 8 and 8.30 AM. After the check-out, we say goodbye, and you can continue your journey.

What our guests say about the Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash

This was one of the best tours I ever had and I can't say enough about how well everything is organized, not to mention wonderful work done by Bianca. Thank you again Bianca for taking my call late at night and setting up all the transportation! As a single woman traveler, booking a tour can be a gamble but this tour was perfect! Jordan was a beautiful country to visit but Bianca and the team made it so great that I am planning on re-visiting next year. Love Wadi Rum!

I have to say, that this was one of the best experiences. Team from wadi rum nomads was able to answer me about every question i had in advance and they also arrange for us taxi transport to and from Wadi Rum Village. They were really helpful, our tour guide was great, nature breathtaking and i cant find right words for night sky and stargazing. I definitely recommend to visit Wadi Rum Desert with night stay with Wadi Rum Nomads.

We highly recommend Wadi Rum Nomads! We weren't their tourists, we were their guests all the way! Responsive, quick, always confirmative answers in fluent English. The camp extremely clean, the food delicious for meat-eaters and vegans among us, our every wish was their command and they did everything to make our experience with them to our liking. They try their best to entertain us, yet they were never pushy!! The experience exceeded our expectations, especially since their hospitality was something incredible!
