There are several different ways of spelling Ayun Khodra as the local Bedouin language is based on phonetics rather than the written word. It is a Bedouin homestead where the Mezzeina tribe use the natural spring to grow a variety of produce including dates, apples and grapes. The Mezzeina are typical Bedouin people, extremely hospitable, and make superb tea. I... More

We started the day travelling to the White Canyon from Nuweiba, only about a 40 minute drive, the last bit off road, but not too rough. The descent into the canyon was down a short rope then a ladder, which sounds and looks worse than it is ! we are a family with 2 girls aged 10 and 6 and... More

We start the trip by a 4x4 car through Wadi Watir in Sinai desert to visit the oasis of Ein Khudra, meaning Green Spring, is a picturesque oasis with gardens and date palms, encircled by steep mountain ranges and vertical cliffs. It is very easy to reach from the main road. There are springs here – one of them is... More

Getting to the oasis was not an easy trip, since I happen to be very afraid of heights and we had to scale down a small canyon wall. This trip is not for those who are not in decent physical condition. Perhaps try to use the toilet before heading out as well. Our bedouin guide was very sweet and kind,... More

This is an interesting Bedouin oasis, reputedly on the original pilgrims route from Jordan to Mount Sinai and with links to the early history of St Catherine’s Monastery. There is a fascinating water source that must have been in use for thousands of years. The oasis is now a fairly popular destination for camel safari’s and day trips to the... More

Ain Khudra is a very small oasis located 12 km north for Nuweiba, approx. 8 km away from the main road (way from Nuweiba to St. Catherine). This marvellous place is a very beautiful example for an oasis. Hot water is coming up from the ground and there are palm trees and guava trees. Only a few Beduines are living... More
