Jabal Khazali, Wadi Rum: 8 reviews and 10 photos

  Jebel Khazali and the Canyon
by TheWanderingCamel

The main attraction for visitors to Jebel Khazali is the cleft in the rock on the northern side. This is a great split which you enter on a rock ledge. It is possible, if you are determined, to scramble back several hundred yards/meters, although not everybody does so. The walls of this ravine are covered with drawings of people, horses and pairs of feet.

There is also a peculiar set of carvings that look a bit like protruding thumbs: archaeologists are not sure what they are meant to be, but it has been suggested that they were used for a game.

The price for a drive here from the Visitors' Centre is 15JD.

Directions: Jebel Khazali is directly in front of you when you drive south down Wadi Rum from Rum village.
