Very inteersting place with it's own legend. You can climd to the Spring and see all Wadi Rum from the hill (Former volcano), make spectaculous pictures and drink bedouin tea at the shadow after coming back

Beautiful red rocks and sand. Camels can be seen wandering around. We had a Bedouin lunch at the film studios which was great. Well organised for large groups and freshly cooked in front of you. Lawrence of Arabia was filmed here.

Sadly unimpressive. A water trough filled by a pipe (dry) and a sparse line of green on the mountain with a tree about 100' up and no path. We didn't bother to go up.

Our first tour stop was Lawrence's Spring. We saw folks up at the top, but there was no clear path or trail to get up there, just ALOT of boulders and rocks. You'll have to forge your own path, I'd suggest to the center-left on...More
