We are delighted to be launching a fabulous 5 -day challenge trek in the magnificent Wadi Rum, Jordan.
The home of several Bedouin tribes, the vast Wadi Rum, the Valley of the Moon, is most famous for its association with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18. In the 1980s, one of the rock formations in Wadi Rum, originally known as Jabal al-Mazmar (The Mountain of the Plague), was named "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom" after Lawrence's book penned in the aftermath of the war. Shots of Wadi Rum in the 1962 film ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ were responsible for kick-starting Jordan’s tourist industry and introducing travellers to this spectacular place.
The trail follows old shepherd paths, weaving its way west across desert wadis and over striped granite mountains, caused by basalt dyke intrusions, as we summit Jordan's highest mountain. At the end of the trek, we pay a visit to the ancient city of Petra.
