This Camel trek can be taken from Rum Village to the Camp or from the Camp to Rum Village. Ideal for people who are arriving in the afternoon and maybe want to do a full day Jeep tour the next day. This Camel trek is a good introduction to the desert. It can also be taken from the Camp to the Village and it is a nice way to bid farewell Wadi Rum slowly. The light in the afternoon and early morning is always very beautiful and changeable. If you take the trek in the morning you should finish in Rum Village by 11am. If you take the trek in the afternoon you should plan to arrive with at least 3 hours of daylight available. This trek includes a mounted guide.
At each stop you have the opportunity to hike, scramble, and explore in your own time & your own way:
1. Khazali Canyon This canyon was once used by the local Bedouin to rest in the shade, in the hot summer. You can easily imagine how it would have looked with Bedouin tents, family’s resting, drinking tea, and children playing. You can find on the canyon walls many ancient rock inscriptions (See if you can spot the inscriptions of feet, and the Orynx). 15 minute hike
2. Small Rock Bridge This small rock bridge is easy to climb and rewards with a beautiful view across the valley. 10 minute scramble
3. House of Lawrence A Nabatean structure that Lawrence of Arabia according to hearsay he used during the Great Arab Revolution to store weapons. But without lingering on the possible academia of this site there is a wonderful view from here.. Archaeological interest/ viewpoint
4. Anfishieh Inscriptions Rock inscriptions of the Camel Caravans on the Anfishieh Jebel from the Thamudic and Nabatean periods. Inscriptions
5. Red Sand Dunes This area is very beautiful with many differing colours of rock and sand. You can climb up the sand dune for the wonderful view at the top. Then we like to jump off it & run down it (some silly people also like to roll down it!). 10/15 minute hike
