Climbing in Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum is still virgin area for climbers. And exceptional. In fact, the thing is that hardly anyone goes rock climbing in Wadi Rum, which is why you should. Those of you who are interested should read a bit more about climbing adventure in Wadi Rum.

Review from climbing experience

Rum seems to me like a giant children’s playground. The rocks just beg to be clambered over, and the compulsion to explore around the next corner, beyond the next dune and up the next canyon is irresistible. One of Rum’s greatest pleasures is simply to wander the desert and sleep under the stars. Rum village itself is quite a noisy place both day and night. If the Muezzin does not disturb your sleep then the dogs and various bellowing farmyard animals certainly will. It is best to use it as a base between camping trips out into the peaceful outlying areas of the desert.

IMPORTANT

You should stay hydrated so you are not tired and have no headache after the whole day on the sun.

Protect your head from the sun and heat. The best way is how the locals do so wrap your head with shawl if you are not in the shade.

Use UV filter cream on your skin. We highly recommend to do that not only during summer period.
