about Burdah Rock Bridge
This natural rock arch is the largest of Wadi Rum's rock bridges and furthrest from the village. It towers about 300 metres above the desert plain, and the three-and-a-half-hour there-and-back hike is better suited to moderately fit people. From across the valley we can see this rock bridge from the desert plain below, and as we near the mountain wall of Jebel Burdah it disappears from view far above us.
Full-day tour of Wadi Rum with hike up Burdah Rock Bridge and overnight
We travel by jeep to the foot of Burdah Rock Bridge in the White Desert, 30 kms south of the village. From there we hike up to the rock bridge (about three-and-a-half hours up and down, a shorter time for fit people.)
On our descent our cooking guide will have lunch (cooked over a fire) ready for you, and we will rest in the shade and quiet of the desert for a while.
In the afternoon we will visit Um Frouth Rock Bridge, and you can scramble to the top. Then to a desert dam to show you how water is collected in the desert, the Mushroom Rock, and a view of the red and white deserts.
There are two options for your overnight stay - either at our camp or sleeping under the stars.
1. At our camp - we drive to our camp before sunset, and you can take a shower and relax, and watch the sun set over distant mountains. Dinner is freshly-prepared Bedouin food, and on some evenings we cook a zarb, a traditional underground Bedouin barbecue. You can explore our camp area, lie back on the sand and wonder at the star-filled night sky. We sit by the warmth of a fire and share stories and songs. When you are tired there is a comfortable bed waiting for you in your sleeping tent.
More details about our camp here.
2. Sleeping under the stars - we drive to a great location for viewing the sunset, and from there to our camping site in the shelter of a mountain. We will cook a traditional Bedouin dinner, share conversation and songs, and relax by the warm fire. You will be able to lie back on mattresses under warm blankets, gazing up at a star-filled night sky in the quiet of the desert, as you drift off to sleep directly under the stars.

In the morning you will have breakfast before returning to Wadi Rum village by jeep by 8.30am.
