Rakabat Canyon Hike

Challenging route crossing over Umm Ishrin Mountain

This route passes across Umm Ishrin Mountain, connecting Wadi Rum Village with the wide Umm Ishrin Canyon on the other side. It can be done in either direction.

You will pass through narrow canyons all the way up as well as down. Please note, that although not extremely difficult, the Rakabat mountain trek does get tricky at some points, so you should be in good physical shape, and/ or have good experience scrambling on rocks.
Upon exiting into Umm Ishrin Canyon, a beautiful red sand dune comes into sight. 

On the side of the Wadi Rum Village, you will also have a nice view overlooking the whole village.

Half-Day Rakaba

You will do the Rakabat Canyon mountain pass either from the village into Umm Ishrin Valley or the other way around.
