Wadi Ghuweir – Feynan. 16 km hike From Wadi Ghuweir we’ll ascend up through the mountains along a steep but hugely rewarding path, with views across a dramatic valley and the wide expanses of the Wadi Araba Desert. In the afternoon you’ll reach the camp at Feynan and enjoy a night in canvas under the star-spangled desert sky.
Feynan – Ghbour Whedat. 17 km hike we’ll follow Bedouin shepherd paths as we climb into the hills, the desert spread below. Tonight we’ll stay at a wonderful wilderness campsite in Ghbour Whedat.
Ghbour Whedat – Little Petra. 14 km hike its going to take us to little Petra a place like no other will be passing lots of archaeological sites and ruins
Little Petra – Petra. 14 km hike One of the highlights of this walk is that you get to enter the legendary ancient city of Petra via the back door – away from the main thrust of tourists. You’ll walk through sandstone mountains and on to a hidden plateau high above the impressive chasm of Wadi Siyyagh. Just beyond, carved into the cliff face, ‘The Monastery’ (Petra’s most iconic site) suddenly comes into view. Nabataean steps then lead down into ancient Petra, one of the Man Made Wonders of the World.
After an early breakfast we’ll head to the Nabatean Red Rose city of Petra, one of the Seven Modern Wonders of the World, entering it via the Siq, a 1 km long narrow gorge flanked on either side by high cliffs. It’s a pretty spectacular way to enter the city, head after visiting the highlights in Petra to the wadi Rum to enjoy sun set in a Jeep tour
After breakfast, we’ll drive a few hours to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, to enjoy a float! Floating is the right word for it – since the sea’s eye-stingingly high salt content makes it virtually impossible to swim. After a float you can try coating yourself in the famed Dead Sea mud before we head back to the capital (although you might want to wash the mud off first!).
