Wadi Rum Travel Guide: 252 reviews and 606 photos

Coming directly from Amman and on my way to Petra I made an halt as well in Wadi Rum, another of the classical must-do of Jordan!
I have only spent several hours in this area but it was enough to get this special feeling the desert can provide...
Ideally, you should spent the night in the desert and admire the sunset... for the next time maybe!

    Hi Djinn! The small arch is called Rakebat al Vardek and is very close to the Khazali Canyon, not more than 10 minutes from Rum Village! The other arch is at Um Fruth. And finally the "Mountain of the Inscriptions" is Jebel Anafishiya. Lulu

    I have a book all about Wadi Rum I shall dig it out & let you know if I find the place names you have not got. There doesn't seem much freedom there any more, we just went off walking on our own! Wonderful photos, well done (~_~)
