When doing a tour through Wadi Rum it's nice to stop here, hike up the hill to the spring and enjoy the view and the shade of the fig (?) tree.

Just 2km,south-west of the village of Rum. The spring is at the top of a short scramble - head for the fig tree! Although the pool itself is largely unprepossessing, being a stagnant puddle, the views across the desert are truly spectacular. Villagers have kept...More
