Jordan Tour Guide: Wadi Rum Last updated on Tuesday 20th April 2010

Situated 35 miles (56km) from Amman, this famous wadi has some of the most spectacular desert scenery in the world. T.E. Lawrence and Sherif Hussein took this route in World War I, when fighting against the Ottoman armies, and many scenes from the famous movie Lawrence of Arabia were shot here.

The rugged cliffs, carved by wind and sand, are an awe-inspiring sight. Special arrangements can be made to trek through the wadi on camel-back.
