''Bedouin whispers''

One day by jeep and scrambling the Burdah Arch

 
 

Burdah Arch is deservedly one of the best known and the most spectacular sites in Wadi Rum. It is situated about 300meters above the sand and the views from it are magnificent. We include it in a number of our scrambling tours, but this time we are also offering it as an addition to our normal jeep tour. You will lose a bit of the jeep tour, granted, but very little.

 

As usual we start in the village
and drive first to Lawrence's Spring and then to the red sand dunes in Wadi Um Ishrin and to

 
 

Jebel Anafishiya where you can also see some Nabatean inscriptions. We continue to the Barragh Canyon. Here we have lunch.

 

After lunch we proceed to Jebel Burdah and climb to the Arch. We come in from the back, and cross a rocky plateau before reaching the Arch itself. The climb is not a hike - you will need to use your hands over the rocks and you will be happier if you have a fairly good head for heights, but it is straightforward with no real need for a rope. Any adult who is reasonably fit can do this climb, but it is not suitable for children under 16 years old The climb and the descent normally take about 3 to 4 hours. The continuation to the summit of the mountain is much more difficult and is not included in this trip.

 
 

 
 

When we come down we shall usually return to the camp for supper at our Bedouin whispers camp , since it will probably be close to sunset. In the summer, if we have time we can call quickly at the Um Fruth Bridge, but I think you will find it rather dull after Burdah!

Footwear : the boots are better here, but they are not essential. Good walking shoes with cotton socks will do quite well.

You will also need a rucksack or shoulder bag for water, and such oddments as your camera, sunscreen, a light sweater according to season and perhaps some biscuits for a snack.

Price : for 2-3 people 60JD per person, for 4 people or more 45 JD/person. This includes all meals and sleeping equipment with jeep .and scrambling guide .

 

Note : We offer discount to large groups from 8 people and Travel Agencies
