Top Descriptions

Wadi Rum Village is a remote, small and dusty little place, with scarcely any amenities. A few hundred Bedouin inhabit the town, who have settled in mostly concrete structures. You may find yourself here briefly, or possibly overnight, as it is the starting point for excursions into the Wadi Rum Valley proper such as the . The landscape is still somewhat provoking, with giant red sandstone hills and rocks rising around the parameter . Also, if you haven’t had much chance to experience rural yet, it isn’t a bad place to observe a few camel herders and children rolling tyres down the dirt road or dragging pieces of polystyrene around. – Sarah

Top Tips

If you do find yourself here for a couple of extra hours, follow the road that you take into the village towards the valley. About half of the way along you will hopefully see a plausible route up the mountain on the right. Climb as high as you dare to for views of the town.
There is a restaurant on the main road, just as you come into the town; we found this the best bet for food – but even then there were only sandwiches.
There is a tourist information kiosk here but it was not open when we were in town.
You will pass a check point on the main road before arriving into the village. If travelling independently, do make sure you have your identification and permits in order for presentation.
