"Wadi Rum, spectacular scenery" Landscape Tip by chrisvandenbroucke

Landscape, Wadi Rum: 24 reviews and 32 photos

  Wadi Rum, Jordan
by chrisvandenbroucke

Camels are very precious for the bedouins and may not run away. Therefore their forelegs are bound.

(Wadi Rum is some 90 kms south of Petra and can be reached by bus. You may have organised trips with the bedouins for 2 days (one night in a bedouin tent). The rocks (jebels) are spectacular and the colours are magnificent.
You can see Lawrence of Arabia's well, Nabatean prehistoric inscriptions and climb the rocks...)
