We visited in June 2012. Not much to see, but worth a look I suppose! It didn't help that our guide didn't know much about the place. It would also depend on your interest in Lawrence of Arabia and how much you believe that he would have lived here.

You climb up the side of a mountain to reach the spring with its couple of trees. It is a steep climb and probably somewhat dangerous. This was not our favorite part of our tour, but it was worth it. How many people can say they went climbing in the Wadi Rum desert?

Not much there really - just a few green bushes halfway up the cliffside. Good small tent with refreshments though !

Mind blowing, the best experience of my life was the camel ride into Wadi Rum and the overnight with the Bedouin. Anything in Wadi Rum blew me away

The place of the spring is uphill in the mountains but easy to reach. It is also not too far from the entrance into the desert of Wadi Rum. When you climb up to the source you will have a great view into the wadi. At the place of the spring you can find a few trees and some shadow... More

It was a good place to stop, to drink some Arabic tea and the younger members of our family climbed up the rocks to see the source of the spring.

The hike to the spring is nice with nice views but the well itself is not much. Don't drink the water.
