2 days Hiking in Khashkhash area of Wadi Rum desert and 2 nights sleeping under the stars
Meeting place: Wadi Rum Rest House
Start time: 9.00am Day 1
Finish time: 8.30am Day 3
Your guide will meet you at the Wadi Rum Rest House in Wadi Rum village and from there we will start your hiking tour.
From the village we will hike to Lawrence Spring, where you can scramble up the side of the mountain for a great view across the desert, and a hospitality cup of tea waiting for you when you descend.
From there we hike across to the red sand dunes, and then to Khazali Canyon, where we will eat lunch and rest a while.
In the afternoon we hike to the small rock arch, and then to Abu Khashkhasha valley.
We end the day's hike at a great site for viewing the sunset over the mountains and desert sands. Then we go to our camping site as night falls. More information about camping sleeping under the stars here.
We will cook dinner over a fire, enjoy conversation and songs, and you will have the opportunity to view the spectacular star-filled desert night sky, a never-to-be-forgotten experience. You can relax on comfortable mattresses and warm blankets and look up at the stars as you drift off to sleep.
After breakfast we set off at 8.00am, hiking from the red desert into the white desert. We hike across to Um Frouth Rock Bridge, a favourite spot with our visitors. Here you can scramble to the top in a few minutes and walk across the bridge, 15 metres above the desert floor.
We will have our lunch near here and rest a while.
In the afternoon we will hike across to Jebel Um Mugur, and set up camp in the shelter of the mountain. From here you will see the sunset over both the Red and White Deserts.
Again we will cook dinner over a fire, relax, enjoy the magnificent star-filled night sky, and go to sleep again directly under the stars.
After breakfast we will return by jeep to Wadi Rum village by 8.30am, and the tour ends.
Notes about the hiking tour:
There are about 7 hours of hiking each day, about half in the morning and half in the afternoon, with rests at each desert attraction we visit.
A guide will accompany you on the hike, and another guide will go ahead by jeep with everything we need to set up camp, he will prepare the fire, and cook dinner for us.
