Wadi Rum, Jordan, offers a fantastic opportunity to experience the desert in a Middle Eastern culture. The natural landscape is home to monolithic rocks, some of which reach 1,750 metres high, water holes, and canyons. Rock inscriptions dating back 4,000 years old can be found.
The vast expanse of land is tranquil, unspoilt by modern development, and is inhabited by the Bedouins who maintain a nomadic lifestyle. Various excursions are available, including visits to the natural Burdah Rock Bridge which is the tallest in Wadi Rum at a measurement of 35 metres, and the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
