Wadi Rum Desert

Wadi Rum: also known as The Valley of the Moon is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km (37 mi) to the east of Aqaba; it is the largest wadi in Jordan.
Wadi Rum is in Arabic for "Sand Valley", as Rum means sand, especially light sand that can be carried by wind. It has been inhabited by many human cultures since prehistoric times, with many cultures–including the Nabataeans–leaving their mark in the form of rock paintings, graffiti, and temples.

In the West, Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18. In the 1980s one of the rock formations in Wadi Rum was named "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" after Lawrence's book penned in the aftermath of the war, though the 'Seven Pillars' referred to in the book have no connection with Rum.

  • The highest elevation in Jordan is Jabal Umm ad Dami at 1,840 m (6,040 ft) high
  • The second highest peak in Jordan and the highest peak in the central Rum : Jabal Ram  (1,734 metres (5,689 ft) above sea level) 

Wadi Rum is home to the Zalabia Bedouin who, working with climbers and trekkers, have made a success of developing eco-adventure tourism, now their main source of income. The area is now one of Jordan's important tourist destinations, and attracts an increasing number of foreign tourists, particularly trekkers and climbers, but also for camel and horse safari. Popular activities in the desert environment include camping under the stars, riding Arabian horses, hiking, rock-climbing among the massive rock formations and Jeeps are also available for long our tours in side Wadi Rum Desert.
