We start hiking through the massif of Jebel Um Ishrin (Rakebat Canyon) to the valley of Um Ishrin where we have lunch. This route is used by the bedouins to cross with their goats from one side to another. In the afternoon, we continue trekking to Jebel Burdah (the Great Arch) where we have dinner and sleep. We can also climb moving sand to enjoy the red sand and visit Lawrence house if time allowed.

After breakfast, we will start hiking and scrambling to go up to the Burdah Arch and down the same way. We have lunch at the bottom of the route in the valley. In our way, we have rope just for safety, it takes around 4 to 5 hours. After lunch we will walk to Um Imgour where we have dinner and camp.
