The magic of Wadi Rum

E-mail Print
(Duration: three hours, one day, one-day-and-one-night, or longer)
Wadi Rum puts life into perspective. "Rum's glory would not let a man waste himself in feverish regrets," said T E Lawrence (of Arabia), whose descriptions have immortalised the place for so many of us.

Nothing much has changed in the 90 years since Lawrence was here. The timelessness, the silence, the scale of it all; sheer cliffs, limitless sand and the blood red of approaching night. So any tour of Rum must capture some of this magic to be worthwhile. It's almost impossible in half a day -- but if that's all the time you have then we will try. Better to stretch it to full day; at least we can stop to breath the air and touch the rocks and enjoy a cup of bedouin tea and wonder why and how people live here.

A full day includes lunch in the desert and the sunset. And plenty of time to see all the main sites: the ancient inscriptions and drawings deep inside Khazali, huge sand-dunes, rock bridges, the real Lawrence's spring at Al Shallaleh above the 2,000 year old Nabatean temple, quiet cool canyons and breath-taking views. You can walk or ride or have an hour or two by camel.

And you can stay overnight, with dinner, in Saleh's mother's bedouin tent at the foot of Khazali; well equipped these days, with modern cooking facilities and a new WC and shower. Or sleep in the open under the stars, or Saleh can set up camp for you where you want. Breakfast is included, though you need to be up early and away early, unless you want to spend another day or half, abandoning yourself to the magic of Wadi Rum.
