WADI RUM – JORDAN. The magical place I didn´t know existed until we had a tour booked. Like landing on the moon. Welcome to Wadi Rum.
Wadi Rum or “Valley of sand” aka ”Valley of the moon” is for sure one of the most beautiful natural landscape I´ve ever visited, I belive this is what the surface of the moon looks like, sand and cliff formations. No wonder so many movies has been made here.
WHAT TO DO
I suggest you book a tour with a Jeep for this experience and if you feeling a little bit extra adventurous – spend the night in a traditional beduin camp. We skipped that part this time since it´s very cold at night in december an january – and two of us had already done in Sahara. So we where happy just exploring the sand dunes and the cool famous cliffs. Wadi Rum is also popular for climbers who wants to master Jabal Ram, 1734 metres over sea level. I guess this would be the spot if I ever decided to go horse back ridning…
FAMOUS MOVIES WITH SCENES FROM WADI RUM

Enjoy the photos – they are way more expressive than words.
