Hiking and Scrambling

Hiking and Scrambling

 

As one of the most outstanding desert landscapes on earth, Wadi Rum’s vast array of sheer-sided mountains and deep narrow canyons make it an ideal place for hiking, scrambling and climbing. All the routes provide stunning views of the landscape.

Our guests have the opportunity to explore the desert on foot for just a couple of hours or up to three days if you wish. Some highlights of hiking and scrambling in Wadi Rum are the Burdah Bridge, a large natural rock arch, and Jebel Um Adaami, the highest point in Jordan, providing spectacular views of Wadi Rum and into Saudi Arabia.

 


Burdah Rock Arch

We will travel to the spectacular Jebel Burdah and begin the hiking and scrambling to its famous arch. The circuitous route provides an exciting climbing experience and is a lot more fun than a normal walk to the top! Once you reach the highest rock arch in the desert, you can enjoy magnificent views.

Will start by car from the village – go visit many places and will eat lunch, and then after lunch will hike to arch.

This tour includes travel by jeep, hiking to the Arch, lunch, and an overnight stay at our desert camp.

Prices: 1 person: 90JD, 2-3 people: 70JD each, 4-6 people: 45JD each


Jebel Umm Adami

Jebel Umm Adami is the highest mountain in Jordan, with an elevation of 1,854 metres, and is close to the border with Saudi Arabia. Once we arrive at the base of the mountain, we will make a two-and-a-half hour guided hike to the top. The climb is relatively easy – mostly a gradual uphill hike with just a few scrambles. At the top, you will have a 360-degree panorama from the valleys of Wadi Rum to the lands of Saudi Arabia. Our descent will take a little less than two-and a-half-hours.

This tour includes travel by jeep, hiking to the mountain, lunch, and an overnight stay at our desert camp.

Prices: 1 person: 100JD, 2-3 people: 85JD each, 4-6 people: 60JD each
