For us, a 4 hour jeep tour around the World Heritage Wadi Rum’s valleys, mountains, canyons and gorges, dunes and deserts in the sunset. An overnight stay in a “Martian Dome”. And a camel ride at dawn “to clear my senses by a night in Rumm and by the ride down its dawn-lit valley towards the shining plains” Lawrence, T.E. (1926) Seven Pillars of Wisdom. (Wadi means “valley”)
“Rumm was vast and echoing and God-like” Lawrence (of Arabia) wrote in Seven Pillars of Wisom and “Our little caravan grew self-conscious, and fell dead quiet, afraid and ashamed to flaunt its smallness in the presence of the stupendous hills”.
It’s a 4 hour drive from Wadi Rum to the Dead Sea is lowest point on earth at 420m below sea level. The water is so salty it’s like oil; you don’t swim but float, strange.
