The detailed Wadi Rum desert tour Jabal Al-Hash itinerary

Day 1 - Meeting point and start time

We will meet up at our office in Rum village for the check-in at 9.30 AM. We will have some delicious Bedouin tea and chat about our plans for the day and night. Once we finish the check-in, you will have a little bit of time for any final preparations. At 10 AM, we will set out into the stunning desert landscape for a day full of adventures.

Day 1 - In the morning

We begin our journey with a visit to Lawrence spring, a natural spring located halfway up a mountain. From this vantage point, you will be able to take in the awe-inspiring views of Wadi Rum. Next, we will venture to the nearby red dune, where you can climb to new heights and soak in even more stunning scenery. You might even feel the rush of excitement as you run down this magnificent sand formation. Our next stop is the renowned Khazali canyon, home to a unique collection of ancient inscriptions and refreshing waterholes. After a short drive, we will arrive at Little bridge, the first of three splendid rock bridges we will visit throughout the day. We will climb the bridge and marvel at the breathtaking views of the surrounding valley before continuing to our final morning destination, the legendary Lawrence House.

Day 1 - Lunchtime

We venture further into the desert until we reach a tranquil and picturesque spot where we pause for a lunch break. Your guide prepares a freshly made Bedouin lunch right before our eyes. After the meal, you can rest or stroll to explore the surroundings at your own pace.

During the winter season, our daylight hours are limited, which means we will continue our journey right after lunch. Conversely, we have a prolonged break in the summer season to avoid the scorching midday heat.

Day 1 - In the afternoon

We will begin our afternoon with a scenic drive to Mushroom rock. After a short stop, we will continue our journey through the yellow desert until we reach the Burdah rock bridge viewpoint. We will take time to appreciate the magnificent rock bridge and surrounding desert landscape there. Afterward, we will make our way to the narrow and surprisingly green Abu Khashaba canyon. You will enjoy a delightful walk through the canyon, which typically takes about 30-45 minutes. As this is a walking-only canyon, your guide will drive around the mountain and meet you on the other side of the canyon. We will then make our way to the Um Fruth rock bridge, where you can challenge yourself with a short and exhilarating scramble to the top. As the sun begins to set, we will make our way to Um Sabbath to witness the breathtaking sunset.

Day 1 - The overnight stay

We offer three choices for your overnight accommodation: a tent at our camp, outdoor sleeping near our camp, or outdoor sleeping at our ‘cave’. Visit our accommodations page to find detailed information for each option.

After the sun sets, we will take you to our camp or ‘cave’. At the campsite, you will get a brief introduction to the camp’s layout and operations, and we will show you to your tent or the outdoor sleeping area near the camp. At the ‘cave’, everything is clear and easy to understand. 

At both the camp and ‘cave’, we serve a traditional Bedouin dinner. After dinner, you are free to do what you please. Usually, our guests and guides sit together, and you can learn about Bedouin life, chat with others, or just marvel at the billions of stars and enjoy the peaceful desert silence.

Day 2 - In the morning

Whether you are staying at our campsite or at our ‘cave’, witnessing the sunrise is truly a remarkable experience. Feel free to inquire about places to view the sunrise and its timings. We are always happy to assist you. At 7 AM, breakfast will be served, and you will have time to prepare for your second day.  

In the morning, we will take a delightful scenic drive through the desert to reach Jabal Al-Hash, a mountain located near the Saudi Arabia border. Our main activity for the morning is hiking and scrambling on Jabal Al-Hash. The Bedouin trail will lead us to a ridge, and along the way, we take part in a fossil hunt, and your guide can share some information about medicinal plants. Once we reach the ridge, the breathtaking views of the south of Wadi Rum will be our reward. We will head back to the jeep before the morning ends.

Day 2 - Lunchtime

We venture until we reach another tranquil and picturesque spot, where we pause for a lunch break. Your guide prepares a freshly made Bedouin lunch. After the meal, you can rest or stroll to explore the surroundings at your own pace.

During the winter season, our daylight hours are limited, which means we will continue our journey right after lunch. Conversely, we have a prolonged break in the summer season to avoid the scorching midday heat.

Day 2 - In the afternoon

In the afternoon, we will set out on another picturesque drive through the south of Wadi Rum. Our first destination is a Bedouin dam where your guide will show you how we construct dams to collect and preserve water for the dry season. We then proceeded to Um al-Samn to marvel at the beauty of ‘the eye’, an extraordinary rock bridge. If you feel up to it, you can climb the bridge and further up the mountain for awe-inspiring desert views. Then we head to another beautifully shaped rock, Cow rock. Some call this rock Chicken rock. We wonder which name resonates with you more. As the sun begins to set, we will make our way to Um Sabatah to witness another incredible sunset.

Day 2 - The overnight stay

We offer two choices for your second overnight accommodation: a tent at our camp or outdoor sleeping near our camp.

After the sun sets, we will take you to our camp. If this is your first night at our camp, you will get a brief introduction to the camp’s layout and operations, and we will show you to your tent or the outdoor sleeping area near the camp.

We serve a traditional Bedouin dinner. And after dinner, you are free to do what you please.

Day 3 - In the morning

Make sure not to miss the final chance to witness the magnificent sunrise today, especially if you could not catch it earlier. Breakfast is served at 7 AM, after which we pack up and head back to Rum village. You will arrive at our office between 8 and 8.30 AM for check-out. We bid you farewell and wish you a safe journey ahead.

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

What are you even waiting for - book it now!! Really what can I say, this was my second time booking with Wadi Rum Nomads and I cannot recommend them enough. From the initial contact with Bianca and the team, the booking process for the tour, the general advice received before even arriving in Wadi Rum and then of course the absolutely stellar time spent on site you can't go wrong. Everything went smoothly and our guides were very informative and entertaining throughout our stay. You get a nice mix of insights into Bedouin life, the history of Wadi Rum and Jordan, but also a little bit of jokes and banter as well. The only downside to our stay was that it was only for two days and not longer!

Our tour (two days and two nights) with Wadi Rum Nomads was simply perfect! Booking via the easy-to-use website was simple and transparent. There are no hidden costs here, you know exactly what you're getting beforehand. The contact with Bianca via WhatsApp was also very friendly and uncomplicated. We received all the important information in advance in a great e-book so that we could arrive perfectly prepared. The welcome was very warm and professional. The guides and Ali, the cook, were absolutely great. The camp is quiet, very clean and traditional. We had the feeling at every second that everyone had only one goal: to offer us an unforgettable stay. And they achieved that! We can recommend Wadi Rum Nomads 100% and would book them again anytime. Many thanks to the great team!
