Two Days Rakabet Canyon Tour
We start our hiking in Rum village, from where we will walk east for 3 km to Rakabet Canyon. Throughout our walk, you will enjoy the views of wonderful sandstone mountains all around us. On the other side of the canyon (Wadi Um Ishrin) we will stop for lunch and sweet Bedouin tea. After lunch, we will continue through Wadi Um Ishrin to the famous sand dunes. We will then continue on to the Anfasheih inscriptions (dating to 300BC), one of Wadi Rum's most famous historic sites.
After we finish examining the Anfasheih area, we will then continue our trek through the desert, taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of Wadi Rum. Finally, we will reach our destination of Jabel Mkaser Athbee (Gazelle Mountain) where you will enjoy our traditional Bedouin dinner and tea around the campfire. At night, you can enjoy the canopy of stars above your head before your settle in for bed.
After breakfast, we will begin our hike through Al Mahama Canyon and then continue on to Burdah Natural Rock bridge. Once there, we will stop for a short rest and lunch. After lunch, we will walk through beautiful narrow canyon to Um Frouth Rock Bridge, where you will have a chance to walk/scramble up to the top of the bridge. Finally, we will trek towards our camp while the sun sets, enjoying the color changes throughout and landscape as we walk. We will reach our campsite after sunset, and settle down to enjoy another traditional Bedouin dinner and a restful night's sleep.
The next morning, we will drive you back to Rum village so that you may continue the rest of your adventure through Jordan.
If you would like to return to the village by camel instead, we can arrange a camel trek for you to do the final morning. This is just an additional 30JD per camel, and the trek back takes 2-3 hours. You will then arrive at Rum Village between 11:00AM and 12:00PM.
