wadi rum:

 

Wadi Rum is a Bedouin settlement in a valley with giant 2,000-foot desert cliffs, ancient valleys and towering weathered sandstone mountains that rise out of the white and pink colored sands. Stunning in its natural beauty, Wadi Rum, epitomizes the romance of the desert. Tucked away, remote and splendid in both landscape and culture.

 
   

Not being a sand dune style of desert, Wadi Rum has intriguing hills and rock formations known as"jebels" that reach a height of about 1,700 metres. Thousands of years ago, this area was part of the silk and spice route between China and Arabia. Here is an unspoiled natural beauty forged by millions of years of geological formation, erosion and evolution. The word "Wadi" means valley, and Rum a settlement, the home of several semi-nomadic Bedouin tribes of about 20 Bedouin families that have inhabited the area for generations.
