WADI RUM OVERVIEW
Desert safari in Jordan

 

Wadi Rum

 

Location: Jordan

This magical ecosystem in the Jordanian desert features sweeping red sand dunes and towering sandstone arches.

Wadi Rum (Valley of the Moon) lies in the far south of Jordan, set on a high plateau at the western edge of the Arabian desert. Gargantuan rock formations, rippled sand dunes, and clear night skies create an almost fairy-tale setting across an unpopulated area the size of New York City. This is truly the “reddest” part of Jordan, colored by iron oxide, and by far the most dramatic in terms of landscape.

Visiting Wadi Rum is a voyage through the geological evolution of Earth, and many of these topographical features are older than the Dead Sea Rift that forms the western border of Jordan. Massive mesas pop straight up from the sea of sand, the result of primordial tectonic movement that cleaved the bedrock with almost cubic perfection before raising it high above the desert floor. Blowing sand and winter floods smoothed the valleys and gorges, shaping the sandstone into natural towers and curving arches. Harder, older granite forms the substrate of Wadi Rum and is visible among the base strata of the higher mountains.

 The village of Rum sits exactly one mile above sea level, and the surrounding protected   area is home to Jordan’s highest point, Jabal Umm ad Dami (6,083 feet) and other   popular climbs, like the monolithic ridge of Jabal Ramm (5,689 feet) and the pillared   prominence of Jabal Qatar (5,271 feet)

 The 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia introduced the beauty of Wadi Rum to the rest of the world, attracting a steady wave of tourists and a growing number of film crews. The 2015 film The Martian was filmed here, with Wadi Rum standing in as the red planet. The area is second only to Petra as the main attraction in Jordan. With less than three days of rain a year, Wadi Rum has become the ultimate Middle Eastern destination for hikers, climbers, campers, and nature lovers

 

How to Get There

 

Wadi Rum is about a four-hour drive south of Amman on the Desert Highway, and one hour north of Aqaba. Buses travel from Amman, Aqaba, and Petra.

 

 How to Visit

 

Half-day jeep tours can give you a taste of Wadi Rum, but for a richer experience, hike in the sand and camp under the stars with the Bedouin who call this place home. Local guides can be hired in the village and will provide all the necessary gear, food, and transportation. Multiday treks mimic the ancient caravan tradition and are well worth the time.
