Lawrence Spring, also known as Ain Abu Aineh, is a stunning oasis in the heart of the Wadi Rum desert. The spring is located at the top of a short scramble, just 2km southwest of the village of Wadi Rum, and is easily accessible for visitors looking to experience the breathtaking beauty of the area.

As you make your way up the cliff-plinth, you'll hear the echoes of the voices of the Bedouin people watering their camels at the springs, a beautiful sound that has been turned into music. Despite the largely unprepossessing appearance of the pool itself, which is essentially a stagnant puddle, the views across the desert are truly awe-inspiring.

A visit to Lawrence Spring is an unforgettable experience that will leave you with a deep appreciation for the beauty and history of Wadi Rum.
The Al Hasany or red sand dune is a natural wonder in Wadi Rum that must be seen to be believed. It is a towering mountain of red sand that stands out against the surrounding desert landscape. As the sun sets over the dune, the sand takes on a brilliant red hue that seems to glow in the fading light.
Climbing to the top of the dune is a challenging but rewarding experience. The sand shifts underfoot, making each step a struggle, but the sweeping views of the surrounding desert make it all worth it. From the top of the dune, you can see for miles in every direction, taking in the vast expanse of the Wadi Rum desert.
For those who love photography, the Al Hasany dune is a dream come true. The interplay of light and shadow on the sand creates stunning visual effects that change with the passing of the day. Whether you visit at dawn, midday, or dusk, the dune is a constantly evolving work of art
Khazali Canyon is a remarkable geological formation located in the heart of Wadi Rum. This awe-inspiring canyon is a natural wonder that reveals its ancient secrets to those who explore it. The walls of the canyon are adorned with many petroglyphs, etched into the soft sandstone by the Thamudic people thousands of years ago. These intricate carvings depict scenes of daily life, including images of humans, antelopes, mountain goats, and even tigers. The canyon is also home to Nabataean rock carvings and ancient Arabic inscriptions, providing a glimpse into the history of the region.
But the canyon is more than just an open-air museum of ancient art. It is a place of great spiritual significance, revered by generations of Bedouin and other nomadic peoples who have depended on the natural water source that collects in its depths. This water source has ensured the survival of life in the harsh desert environment for millennia, and has been celebrated and sanctified by countless generations of people. Visitors to the canyon can feel the presence of this ancient spirituality as they explore its depths and marvel at the ancient carvings etched into the walls. Khazali Canyon is a truly unique and inspiring destination that will leave a lasting impression on all who visit.
Little Rock Bridge is a stunning natural rock formation located in the heart of Wadi Rum. The bridge gets its name from its small size in comparison to other famous rock bridges in the area. However, what it lacks in size it makes up for in beauty. The bridge was formed over millions of years through natural erosion and weathering, and it has become a popular spot for hikers and adventurers to explore. Visitors can take a short hike to the bridge, where they can admire the incredible views of the surrounding desert landscape. The bridge also offers a great vantage point for stargazing at night, making it a must-see attraction for nature lovers and stargazers alike.
Lawrence's House, also known as Beit Ali, was built on the ruins of a Nabataean temple that dates back to the 1st century AD.
The ruins of the temple were used as a foundation for Lawrence's House, which was built in 1917-1918 by Prince Faisal and his army during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire. T.E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia, used the house as his base of operations during the revolt and it is where he wrote his famous book, "Seven Pillars of Wisdom." Today, the house stands as a popular tourist attraction and a reminder of the rich history and culture of the region. Visitors can step inside the house and imagine what life was like for Lawrence during his time in Wadi Rum.
We will stop for lunch (Hand-made vegetable frying pan, hummus, tuna salad, Jordanian bread, juice).
You will have the opportunity to taste our famous home-cooked lunch and our "secret recipe".
Mushroom Rock is a natural rock formation in Wadi Rum that resembles a mushroom in shape. The rock is a result of years of erosion caused by the harsh desert winds and sandstorms. The cap of the mushroom-shaped rock is made of harder rock that was able to withstand the erosion, while the stem is made of softer sandstone that eroded away.
Burdah Rock Bridge is an iconic natural arch formation located in the heart of the Wadi Rum desert. The bridge is estimated to be around 35 meters high and 20 meters wide and is considered one of the highest natural arches in the world. The bridge is named after the nearby Burdah Mountain and is a popular destination for rock climbers and hikers alike.
The Burdah Rock Bridge was formed over millions of years through the process of erosion and weathering. The rock layers were gradually worn away by wind and water until a natural arch was formed. The arch is made up of the same sandstone and granite rock formations that are characteristic of the Wadi Rum desert, giving it a unique and stunning appearance.
Abu Khashaba canyon is another marvel of nature where the imposing rocks at either side of the canyon stand tall above your head in different twisted shapes, giving you the impression that are "melting" creating a breathtaking view that you will definitely keep with you forever.

Um Frouth Rock Bridge is one of the lesser-known natural wonders in Wadi Rum, but it is no less impressive than other rock formations in the area.

Visitors can hike up to the top of the cliffs for a breathtaking view of the surrounding desert landscape, or simply marvel at the unique geology of the area. The name "Um Frouth" comes from a nearby spring that is said to have healing properties, adding to the mystique and allure of this remarkable site.
