Jabal Umm ad Dami
Trekking to Jabal Umm ad Dami, which is the highest mountain in Jordan (1854m), is one of the most popular excursions. This trip starts around 9:30 in the morning at our camp or Wadi Rum Village. It takes generally 1.5h with jeep through amazing wild desert to get to the Saudi Arabia border. After that together with your guide you climb up to the top to admire, as can be seen below, breathtaking views. Usually going both ways takes around 3h. After all your guide prepares hot lunch on the fire in the middle of the desert.
Jabal Al-Hash is also close to the border of Saudi Arabia but it is much easier to get there on foot. Plan for this trekking is similar as for Jabal Umm ad Dami although it takes less than 2h both ways. Views in that case are also amazing so we also strongly recommend that hike. Overall trip takes full day as you visit other interesting places in Wadi Rum.
It is more technical hike as there are places where you will need to walk very close to the edge of the cliffs and climb, especially at the final stage. However trekking takes around 2h we combine it with half day jeep tour what makes you busy whole day.
Finally you can also go for trekking on your own. Thanks to its location, our camp is excellent starting point for trekking through Siq Burrah. Just take a lunch box and go for your solo discovery walk around.
IMPORTANT | NEED TO KNOW
Drink enough water. It is essential. It is also good to have mineralizing adds (Mg, Ca, K, Na) with you. Whichever camp you stay at you will get water for your next day trip.
Protect your head from the sun and heat. The best way is how the locals do so wrap your head with shawl.
Use UV filter cream on your skin. It is highly recommended to do that not only during summer period. Use at least SPF 30 so you can stay 4h on the sun before your skin will start to turn red.
Wear covered shoes. Choose comfortable covered shoes, especially if you go for trekking. If not you will need them as well if you want to climb a rock during simple jeep tour.
