2 days Scrambling & Hiking

Burdah Arch
2 DAYS SCRAMBLING & HIKING

DAY 1

Starting from rum village, we will scramble along an easy Bedouin road and passing through Rakabat Canyon, a narrow gully used by Beduin to bring their goats to pasture. After descending Um Ashrin valley, we will walk across the sand for two hours to visit the Infishnia inscriptions which date back to 2500 B.C. Then we will stop for lunch under Infasheh mountain. In the afternoon we will walk through the desert to admire the different coloured sands, ranging from bright white to deep purple, passing incredible rock formations. In the evening, we will have dinner and sleep at our bedouin camp.

DAY 2

We will take a 20-min jeep ride to Burdah Arch and start scrambling over pale yellow sandstone slabs to the top of the arch. There will be a short climb with ropes for safety just before the arch. We will enjoy awe-inspiring views across the whole region on top of the arch, the largest in the whole of Wadi Rum. We then descend via a steepish crack or return the way we came from which is an easier option. After lunch, we will take the jeep to see Um Fruth Arch and Khazali Canyon where we will hike for an hour before going back to rum village.
