Known as The Valley of the Moon, Wadi Rum is a valley cut into granite rock and sandstone. The largest wadi in Jordan, it's located 60km east of Aqaba in southern Jordan. A maze of monolithic rockscapes rise up from the desert to heights of 1,750m. It was described by T.E. Lawrence as "vast, echoing and God-like..." Wadi Rum has been inhabited by many cultures since prehistoric times including the Nabateans and is still today inhabited by the Zalabia Bedouins. Popular activities include camping under the stars, riding Arab horses, hiking and rock-climbing.
