Below you can have a look at Wadi Rum's most famous sites inside the Protected Area. They include sites of historical & cultural interest like ancient inscriptions, stunning rock formations formed over millions of years by the influence of wind and water, as well as sand dunes, mountains and canyons.
Red Sand Dune
This red sand dune is a very popular site to visit, and located not to far from the village. It is fun to run or jump down through the red sand. From the top, you get an amazing view over to the nearby huge Khazali Mountain.
Khazali Canyon, named after Ali who by legend survived a jump (Arabic = khaz) from its top. You can find lots of different types of inscriptions inside, from the simple Thamudic stick-like drawings to Kufi which resembles the modern Arabic
Little Rock Arch
This beautiful little arch only takes a minute to scramble up, and is extremely beautiful, especially during the evening sunlight. You also get a far view over the open desert.
Umm Frouth Arch
This is an extremely stunning rock arch, which you have around 20 min to admire. You can climb up on some steps and take some great pictures with you standing on top of the bridge.
We stop at a traditional Bedouin tent, where you can take a cup of tea as well as listen to the oldest Bedouin instrument called Rakaba, made of goat skin and played with a string on a bow.
Mostly rock carvings of camels, these ancient inscriptions were made by passing camel travelers from Egypt en route to Saudi Arabia.
Shown on numerous wall pictures, this rock, which appears like a mushroom, looks quite stunning with the picturesque desert in the background.
The Huge Sand Dunes
Located in an area of many sand dunes inside the Protected Area, this huge dune has fewer crowds and has very scenic views of the desert. It is extremely fun running down its long descent.
Another rock formation which has been formed over millions of years by the influence of wind and water. It is informally called the Chicken Rock as it resembles a standing chicken.
Abu Kashaba Canyon
This is one of the most scenic narrow sandy canyons in Wadi Rum. It takes about 25 min to slowly walk through, and you have to scramble over some rocks in the middle part. We pick you from the other end.
Having been an important water source all throughout time, it gave water to passing travelers and livestock. Long time ago, you needed to climb up to the actual spring, but later pipes were built to bring the water down.
These famous old ruins of a house were built by the Nabateans, later utilized as a storage space by the Romans, and finally taken over by Lawrence of Arabia from where it got its fame through the same-named movie.
