The Al-Hash desert tour

Day 1 – Wadi Rum jeep tour

Start time

During summer time our tours start at 10 AM. During winter time our tours begin at 9 AM.

Meeting each other

We meet each other next to the Rest House in Rum village. Here we enjoy a Bedouin tea. We take the time to relax and talk about what we have in mind for today. After finishing our drink, we leave Rum village to go out into the desert.

In the morning

A short ride brings us to the natural spring called Lawrence spring. You scramble the spring to enjoy the spectacular views across Wadi Rum desert. We continue our drive and head to Khazali canyon. Here you see ancient inscriptions and a waterhole. Our next stop is at a red sand dune. You can climb the dune and enjoy running down. A short drive brings us to the big rock wall called Anfishiyyeh. This rock wall is famous for its ancient inscriptions. The last site we visit in the morning is the Lawrence house.

Lunchtime

We drive to a nice, quiet and shady place where we take a few hours break. We prepare a Bedouin meal for you. After we finish our lunch, there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.

In the afternoon

We start the afternoon with a beautiful drive to the Mushroom rock. We make a short stop before continuing to Um Fruth rock bridge. You can climb this bridge and enjoy the views of this part of Wadi Rum desert. We drive to the surprisingly green and narrow Abu Khashaba canyon. You walk through the canyon in about half an hour. We wait for you on the other side. Before we go to Um Sabatah to watch the sun set we visit the natural rock bridge of Burdah.

For your overnight stay, you have two options. You can either ‘sleep under the stars’ (bivouac camping) or in our camp, Wadi Rum Base Camp.

Overnight stay ‘sleeping under the stars’ (bivouac camping)

We end our day tour at a ‘cave’ to stay overnight. We cook you a traditional Bedouin dinner. The evening can be spent around the fire. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.

Overnight stay in Wadi Rum Base Camp

We end our day tour at Wadi Rum Base Camp. Here we serve you a traditional Bedouin dinner. The evening can be spent in the communal area, or, during warm days, outside. We can tell you about Bedouin culture and music, or you can gaze into the starry night sky and enjoy the peaceful silence of the desert.

Day 2 – morning hiking and scrambling Jabal Al-Hash and afternoon jeep tour

In the morning

You can wake up to the rising sun. We prepare your breakfast. Afterwards, we break up and drive through the beautiful desert to Jabal Al-Hash. The mountain is close to the border with Saudi Arabia. The climb to the top of Jabal Al-Hash is easy. 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 top of the mountain. After taking our time to enjoy the views we head back.

Lunchtime

We drive to another nice, quiet and shady place where we take a few hours break. We prepare a Bedouin meal for you. After we finish our lunch, there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.

In the afternoon

In the afternoon you go on another jeep tour to visit some of the most beautiful places or you can request a camel tour (not included in the price). Please let us know your preference in advance.
Late in the afternoon we head back to Rum village. We arrive here around 3 PM. From here you can continue your journey. Of course we can help you to arrange transportation to your next destination.
