A journey to Wadi Rum is a journey to another world. A vast, silent place, timeless and starkly beautiful, Wadi Rum is one of Jordan most stunning deserts capes in the World. As the main inhabitants of Wadi Rum, the lives of the Bedouin are intrinsically linked with the desert landscape and here and there you will see women herding goats and families around their traditional camel hair tents. Uniquely shaped massive mountains rise vertically out of the pink desert sand, which separate one dark mass from another in a magnificent desert scenery of strange breathtaking beauty with towering cliffs of weathered stone. The faces of the sheer rock cliffs have been eroded by the wind into faces of men, animals and monsters. Immortalised as the desert of Lawrence of Arabia, Wadi Rum (Wadi means valley) was once a meeting place for caravans from Arabia but also has a longer history dating back to pre-historic times.
