it is an expertise. Wadi rum is a incredible experience. Never realized how the moon was so illuminating...What I missing at most? Well ...the silence, the vastness, the rising & setting sun.., at the horizon of the red sand dunes.
Treks & Climbs
An excellent book is "Treks & Climbs in Wadi Rum" by Tony Howard.
I would recommend anyone going to Wadi Rum independently to read this. As well as treks it has some amazing items on rock climbing the Jebels & photos
The Bedouin women make cheese from the goats' milk. it is boiled and then strained and finally the resulting past is shaped into a round and left to dry. It can be kept for years like this if necessary. When it is to be used, it is soaked in hot water and softened into a paste again. It is usually used then to cook meat or chicken.
Packing for Wadi Rum
Leave your luggage behind at a hotel if you can. I landed in Amman, then left my luggage there, travelling to Petra and Wadi Rum with a small shoulder bag and knapsack. At the end of my trip, I checked in again to the same hotel before my flight home. Very convenient, no charges, and I loved that I had clean clothes and a pair of shoes with no sand in them ready for me. Good climbing / scrambling / hiking sandals or boots. Runners or hiking sandals are probably ok for everything unless you're doing serious climbing. The sand gets everywhere - even in your socks. The combination of rock and sand are hard on your clothes - bring durable wear. Whites will discolor from the red sand. The desert can get cold at night - a pair of sweats and a fleece warm up are a good idea, and comfortable to sleep in. Sunscreen is a must. Seriously consider CHAPSTICK for the desert.
Personnal travel first aid kit is a good idea.
Wet ones / baby wipes or pre-soaked facial cloths are excellent for cleaning up in the desert. Carry a few kleenex with you - in your pockets - they'll come in handy because there are no bathrooms in the desert and frequently no toilet paper anywhere in Jordan. Spare card for digital cameras, cable to connect your camera to a computer to transfer photos, blank CD's, spare batteries, a case to carry it all when hiking. Many tourists winding up taking hundreds of photos in Wadi Rum. A battery recharger is a very good idea. Headlight is great for nightime use. A Flashlight will work too.
Knapsack for day hiking.
Cap or something to cover your head. 1.5L bottle of water - anything that will keep the water cool, it warms up within a few hours.
I carry a small emergency kit in a zip lock bag - 2 tea candles, matches, lighter and foil sheet - no larger than a wallet.
Hot Air Ballooning
Hot Air Ballooning has resumed in the Wadi Rum area. It was declared dangerous and prohibited because of the air currents on the massifs, but the village of Shakriya, about 5 miles from Rum Village is more open. You still get the magnificent views of the mountains.
The ballooning is organised by the Royal Aerosports Club of Jordan in Aqaba, phone number 03-205.8050/51 mobile 079-574.1441.
