ITINERARY FOR THE FULL DAY HIKE IN WADI RUM

This morning we will rendezvous in Wadi Rum village at 9:00 for your tour to begin.  Your guide will then drive you by jeep to Jabal Umm Ad Dami. There he will park the vehicle at the base of the mountain.  You will take your backpack with water, sunscreen, camera and other necessary items.  Then the hiking and scrambling begins!

Hikers should take their time and climb slowly.  Don’t push yourself, but save your energy. When you reach the top you will see almost all the mountains of Wadi Rum.  If the air is clear you should be able to see the Red Sea from the top as well. Take some stunning pictures to remember the moments at the top of this peak.  Then, slowly descend to the jeep. It will take between four and five hours to make the ascent and descent, depending on how quickly you make the hike. Now it is time to find a nice spot to have lunch, relax and drink some tea and juice.

Following your lunch break, you will go to see the ancient rock inscriptions in the beautiful area of Wadi Sabat.  In the afternoon, you will do some nice hikes in this area near the border.  You will find canyons to hike in the area of Wadi Sabet and Umm Ad Dami. Then you will drive to a high point from which to view the sunset.

Evening

Now it is time for the sun to set.  Your guide will take you to Umm Sabata, which we think is the best place for viewing the magnificent sunset in Wadi Rum.  Enjoying the sunset and sip the sweet bedouin tea made over the fire. 

After sunset you will be brought back to the village by jeep.
