Day 2 to  Day 5 : AMMAN / WADI RUM
Departure in the morning for the desert of Wadi Rum. Four days during which we hike in the desert of Wadi Rum. It was in these fantastic landscapes that Lawrence of Arabia and his Bedouin allies repulsed the Turkish occupier. One of the most beautiful deserts in the world, it offers breathtaking and constantly changing views. We will pass through Jebel Khazali and its narrow canyon in order to quietly appreciate the landscapes of this desert of sand and rock, one of the most beautiful sites in Jordan. We continue on foot to the Umm Fruth massif. Wadi Rum is also the homeland of the Bedouins that we sometimes meet under the cover of their black tents made of goat hair. The tradition of Bedouin hospitality has become legendary. Nights at the camp under the stars. We are always working to find spectacular places in the desert to camp. We decide on the exact location according to the weather and the season.

The Greeks called it the “asphaltite lake”, the Muslims the “stinking lake”, the Hebrews the “sea of ​​salt”, or even the “sea of ​​law” alluding to the destruction “by sulfur and fire” of Sodom and Gomorrah, the two cities bordering the lake from which only Lot and his family could escape. Continuation to Amman. Visit of the old town with its Roman theater and its citadel. Night at the hotel.
