Jordan: Wadi Rum – the ultimate nature playground
Wadi Rum is a totally outworldly and surreal Martian-like desert and mountains area, replete with red sandstone rocks, stand alone pillars, arches, canyons, and blood-red colorful sand dunes. The largest wadi (dry river bed) in Jordan, it is the ultimate nature playground for hiking, 4WD-ing, climbing, or just sitting back and enjoy the incredible landscape and colors. Watch camels pass by, climb to the too of incredible arches, or get stuck in deep red sand while trying to navigate the dunes – you can do it all here. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
