Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum, also known as The Valley of the Moon, is a sandstone and granite desert valley located in the southwest of Jordan offering spectacular desert scenery and jaw-dropping sunsets. It was famous for the base of T.E. Lawrence’s Arab Revolt of 1917-8, and also as the location for filming ’Lawrence of Arabia’ in 1962.

Wadi Rum is home to local Bedoiuns, who mostly live in a small village of goat-haired tents, concrete houses, a school and a few shops. Others can be found dotted throughout the Wadi. Ancient settlements were evidently based in Wadi Rum, given the existence of petroglyphs in the Khaz’ali Canyon depicting humans and antelopes dating back to Thamudic times.
