April 28, 2012 - PRLog -- This location first became famous in the early 20th century through the exploits of Lawrence of Arabia, and still offers plenty of opportunity for adventure travel.

The Bedouins have lived in these deserts for thousands of years, and one tribe, the Huweitat, claims to be descended from the Prophet Muhammad. Groups can experience what it would be like to live a nomadic existence in these arid plains through hiking or even camping out in the Protected Area overnight.
Though Wadi Rum is a desert, it is also the habitat of more than 200 different varieties of animals and a diverse selection of 360 species of plants. Individuals who are interested in adventure travel may enjoy exploring the area on camel or horseback, either alone or on a guided tour.
Wadi Rum is a beautiful and special area that it is best visited with a small group of adventure travelers.
About Wadi Rum :

"Rum the magnificent... vast, echoing and Godlike... a processional way greater than imagination..." Those were the words used by the English writer and army captain Lawrence of Arabia to describe the desert of Wadi Rum. A place where he returned to time and again 'to clear my senses... I would say, shall I ride on this time, beyond the Khazali, and know it all?'

A visit to Wadi Rum is a journey to another world, a silent and timeless place where you will be dwarfed to insignificance. In the desert of Wadi Rum the Bedouin people still live as they have been doing since time immemorial. They still wander through the desert looking for the best places to herd their sheep and goats, carrying their black tents with them wherever they go. You can dwell for days without meeting a soul. Apart from maybe a Bedouin family sitting in it's goat-wool tent you are surrounded by sky-high cliffs of rose-red sandstone rock only.
