about Jebel Um Adaami
At 1845 metres above sea level, Um Adaami is the highest mountain in Jordan. It is situated 40 kms south of the village of Wadi Rum, on the border with Saudi Arabia. From the summit on a clear day visitors will have views across the north of Saudi Arabia, and even to the Red Sea. Although it is high and a local guide is needed, it is not a difficult hike to the top of Um Adaami.
Full-day tour of Wadi Rum with hike up Jebel Um Adaami and overnight
From Wadi Rum village, we travel by jeep 40 kms south to Jebel Um Adaami, passing through the wide valley of Wadi Sabet. At Jebel Um Adaami your guide will lead the way to the top of the mountain, a hike of about three-and-a-half hours to get up and down, allowing plenty of time to enjoy the views from the top.
Back down from the mountain and we will have lunch (cooked over a fire), and rest in the shade and quiet of the desert for a while.
After lunch we will travel by jeep to visit a place to show you how water is collected and stored in the desert, and we will visit the red sand dunes, and as we travel you will see the variety of colour and topography of the desert landscape.
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.
