You scramble up to the spring to enjoy the spectacular views across Wadi Rum desert. We continue our drive and head to Khazali canyon. Here you see ancient inscriptions and a waterhole. Our next stop is at a red sand dune. You can enjoy climbing barefoot up and down this magnificent sand dune. Another short drive brings us to the big rock wall called Anfishiyyeh. This rock wall is famous for its ancient inscriptions. The last site we visit in the morning is Lawrence’s house.

You can walk through the canyon in about half an hour. We will be waiting to pick you up on the other side. We will then head to Um Sabatah to watch the sun set and visit the natural rock bridge of Burdah.
Overnight stay ‘sleeping under the stars’ (bivouac camping)
