Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum was one of the highlights of my trip to Jordan. I had booked a desert tour including a half-day hike to Burdah Rock Bridge and stayed overnight in one of the Bedouin camps. I didn't know what to expect and knowing what I know now I would have stayed another night to also do a day hike.

This photo was taken along the hike, or rather scramble, to the top of Burdah Rock Bridge in Wadi Rum, Jordan. The views from halfway up and onwards are magnificent.

Looking back to where I just came from. The hike to Burdah Rock Bridge involves some serious scrambling. We actually descended from this rock.

The landscape around Diseh, northwest of Rum village, looks just as interesting as Wadi Rum proper.
Goodbye Wadi Rum. Beware of crossing camels.
