Wadi Rum intro.Known as the Valley of the Moon, Wadi Rum is the largest valley in Jordon, cut into a rock of granite and sandstone. This UNESCO World Heritage site is covered in cave paintings and rock carvings, reminding visitors of the vast number of cultures that have inhabited the area since prehistoric times. Today, this Bedouin area is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Jordon. Many Wadi Rum hotels offer adventurous rock climbing, trekking and other eco-tourism excursions. Jebel um Adaami is the highest point in the valley and an exhilarating challenge for advanced climbers, offering a view of the Saudi border and the Red Sea on a clear day. Embark on a camel or horse safari to explore the region's mix of ancient temples and contemporary mosques. The Seven Pillars of Wisdom is a rock formation named by TE Lawrence, the British author and former officer during the Arab Revolt of 1917, who may be better known as Lawrence of Arabia. The romantic moonscape of deep valleys and towering cliffs is guaranteed to charm all who venture to Wadi Rum.
