Wadi RUM & History

The desert

The desert and the act of moving through it, is a wonderful experience for cleaning the mind of all the daily thoughts and worries. The desert and it’s dunes stretch for miles and miles. Life settles into a timeless routine of local tea and fresh bread, walking, a lunch stop for fresh salad and a siesta. Then a few more miles before the evening meal, a roaring fire, singing and a night under the stars as you have never seen before.

We move at the same gentle, effortless pace as our camel train, either riding the Bedouins camels or enjoying the hot sand or bare feet. The Bedouins learned how to live with this beautiful yet savage area thousands of years ago and are completely at one with the endless sands of the desert .
in this place your profound desires are launched and your dream fantasies come to life. Since ancient times, the desert has been deep in our thoughts. In the dreams of all human beings,

A journey to Wadi Rum is a journey to another world . A vast, silent place, timeless and starkly beautiful.. Wadi Rum is one of Jordan's main tourist attractions ,being the most stunning desert cap ,in the World, lying 320 km southwest of Amman , 120 km south of PETRA , and only 68 km north of agaba, Wadi Rum is a protected area covering 720 square kilometers of dramatic desert wilderness in the south of Jordan. Huge mountains of sandstone and granite emerge, sheer-sided, from wide sandy

valleys to reach heights of 1700 meters and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains and many conceal ancient rock drawings etched by the peoples of the desert over millennia. Bedouin tribes still live among the mountains of Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape.

Wadi Rum has been inhabited by many human cultures since prehistoric times, with many cultures — including the Nabateans — leaving their mark in the form of rock paintings, graffiti, and temples. As of 2007, several Bedouin tribes inhabit the area; as described in the following quote from "The Lonely Planet:"

"... just one giant sandy history museum. Nearly every valley, mountainside and watering hole has a relic of the past: Thamudic, Safaitic, Nabataean, Greek and Arabic graffiti litter the cliff faces, a rich repertoire of rock art replete with hunting scenes adorns cave walls, there are rudimentary stone age shelters scattered throughout the gorges and, near Jebel Rum, there is even an ancient Nabataean temple.[1]"
In the West, Wadi Rum may be best known for its connection with British officer T.E. Lawrence, who based his operations in Wadi Rum during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War (1914–18). Also referred to as, Lawrence of Arabia, Lieutenant-Colonel Lawrence described the romance of Wadi Rumm when he opined:

"No man can live this life and emerge unchanged. He will carry, however faint, the imprint of the desert, the brand which marks the nomad; and he will have within him the yearning to return, weak or insistent according to his nature. For this cruel land can cast a spell which no temperate clime can match.'" Thomas Edward Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom[2]"
Fans of the 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia will be familiar with the landscape, which is not so much sand dunes as it is a mass of soaring cliffs and sandstone and granite mountains (jubaal in Arabic)[3].
