Jordan: Climbing the red dunes of Wadi Rum
The most incredible sight in Wadi Rum are the red dunes, deep deep red in color. In fact, the landscape is so Martian that Wadi Rum is often chosen for sci-fi movies – Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, Red Planet, Prometheus, Last Days on Mars, and finally The Martian – were all filmed here. You can climb the red dunes to the top (not easy going endeavor) for some incredible panoramic views of the endless landscape of Wadi Rum. Definitely one of the most amazing places I have seen in my life.
