have broken the stones of this desert to make it an unforgettable place in Jordan.
This occurred during the primary era, and since then, erosion has shaped the mountains.
Today Wadi Rum
offers one the strangest and most breathtaking landscape on earth.
The Jebel Rum culminates 1754 meters above the sea level wich is the highest point
in Jordan. Some important spot have made of the Wadi Rum a famous place for movies.
Laurence's well is a spring from which you have a beautiful point of view on the
spring can be seen only 500 meters from the village of Rum. It is the biggest
in the Wadi Rum with few small trees around. There numerous nabateans inscriptions
near Lawrence's well and others that have been left by the Saudi Arabian thamud's
A natural arch suspended over the Wadi and a narrow canyon are other attractions.
Bedouin, nabatean, thamudean and pre-Islamic inscriptions are carved in the stone
in many different points. But the most interesting of a visit is still the desert
and in order to enjoy it entirely, you have to leave the village. There sleeping
in the open is a wonderful experience because the desert is so quiet that it can
resound and the only sound that can be heard is the singing of bedouins. On top
of that sunset and sunrise, with a very pure air can allow to see the green light,
and is almost beautiful.
