The detailed Jabal Al-Hash and Burdah rock bridge tour 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. The rest of the morning will be spent 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 Ashaman 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

This morning you have another chance to witness the magnificent sunrise. At 7 AM, breakfast will be served, and you will have time to prepare for your third day.  

In the morning, we drive through the beautiful desert to the north side of Jabal Burdah. Our main activity for the morning is to scramble up the Burdah rock bridge. While the climb itself is not terribly challenging, some parts may require the use of your hands due to steep inclines. The most difficult part is located near the bridge. Along the way, you will already be rewarded with amazing views. And once we reach the rock bridge, you will be rewarded with breathtaking and unparalleled views of the central part of Wadi Rum. Take time to take in the beauty of it all before we make our way back down to the jeep.

Day 3 - 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 3 - In the afternoon

In the afternoon, we will begin by visiting a Roman dam that was constructed to conserve water for the dry months. Afterward, you will embark on a hike through the awe-inspiring Barrah canyon, which is renowned for its diverse and stunning nature and breathtaking rock formations. You may find that the hike feels too brief, given the variety of the canyon. As the sun begins to set, we will make our way through the vibrant yellow and red desert to Um Sabatah to witness another incredible sunset.

Day 3 - The overnight stay

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

After sunset, we will return to our camp for another traditional Bedouin dinner and an overnight stay.

Day 4 - In the morning

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 Jabal Al-Hash & Burdah rock bridge tour

Cannot recommend Wadi Rum nomads highly enough. They made our three days and nights in the desert truly special with unforgettable memories. Would suggest staying for at least two days to get the most out of your trip. Thanks again to Fawwaz and our guide Mohammed.

We had three amazing days and nights at the camp and the cave. First day was standard and pretty crowded, second day we had a stunning view from jebel al-hash. On the third day we had to exchange the Burdah bridge Tour with the less demanding trip to Wadi Sabet due to me catching a severe cold. The adjustments were handled very well, and our guide Hamed even collected some herbs that really helped. We can highly recommend the Wadi Rum Nomads.
