The classic Jeep tour (usually they are Toyota pickups!) is the most popular way to get around the desert so you can see more in less time. Go for a full day tour.
This is a bucket-list item for many travelers to the region. In Wadi Rum you can go for a longer trek, or go for a shorter ride of 1-3 hours to get a feel for it.
One of the most dramatic ways to experience the desert is to get a bird's eye view. An unforgettable experience!
The three most popular mountains to hike are Jabal Hash (in the south), Jabal Umm Ad Dami (highest mountain in Jordan) and Jabal Burdah (with Jordan's highest rock bridge).
There are large and small rock bridges, rocks shaped like a mushroom or a cow. Many formed by the slow erosion of the sandstone.
There are several named locations from the Exodus that are in Wadi Rum, as Moses and the people passed through the area called "The wilderness of Paran."
Sip sweet bedouin tea brewed over the fire and enjoy the sunset from a good vantage point.
The most famous bedouin dinner is the Zarb, which is cooked under the sand. Digging it out is a big part of the fun, and of course food cooked this way is delicious!
Most people in the world live in areas with so much light pollution that they never really see the milky way or the night sky in all its glory.
