CAMEL RIDE FROM PETRA TO WADI RUM

 

Day 1: Drive from Petra to Rajif – Camel Ride from Rajif Mountains to Beer Hamad

The king’s high way between the villages of Taybeh and Rajif affords a rare vista of steep sandstone inselbergs with sheer side cliffs, crowned with mazes of domes and little valleys. The inselbergs are dissected by narrow canyons which hide springs and groves of fruit trees. The route goes through several canyons and ascends the inselbergs of Jebel Juleif and Jebel Barza, both offering rewarding views. Ruins of a Nabatean village and an Edomite stronghold are found in the lower reaches of Wadi Tajra to Beer Hamad, which is a Bedouin Well surrounded by Bedouin Tents, where goats come at noon to drink water, we will have our campfire near the well, and spend the night by visiting some Bedouin families and have tea with them.
