Sun City Wadi Rum was one of out highlights of our vacation . It was excellent. It was my birthday and they made it sure it was a special day. They was friendly, attentive, informative (a fountain of information on the history, geography, culture and traditions of the country), catered to every need from the food, service, accomadation, the sunset...

Well, it's not the most exciting place in Wadi Rum but it offers great view of the "central" or "main" valley. It's an obligatory point if your time is limited. The spring is nothing special, you'll walk there for the landscape views only. TIP: Watch your step! Rocks might be wet and are more slippery here than in other parts... More

This was the first sight that we saw in Wadi Rum: a spring high on the rock. Beautiful sight. The climb is not for the faint hearted.

This is a famous stop in all dessert tours. The spring itself is small, but the hike up is nice to do - you have a great view!

It is a stop on the jeep tour of Wadi Rum. There is a tent at the bottom that serves tea and an opportunity to buy some souvenirs. The actual spring itself is nothing spectacular but the view of the landscape from the spring is quite nice. For your safety, make sure you get your guide to clarify the best... More

The first stop on the jeep tour to our camp was at Lawrence's spring. It was just a rock with some piping to which water is being pulled down from the spring. Our guides didn't even mention the possibility to climb to it which was sort of a shame as I am like a mountain goat and love climbing. Next... More

Lawrence's Spring is one of the few places where water seeping through sandstone mountain meets the granite bed. The water collects creating a spring which is tapped and piped to a trough for domestic animals. A person can climb to the source of the spring, where the sedimentary and igneous rock meet, but this requires clambering up the side of... More

Our guide too us here, explained everything but I was too busy looking up at the enormous rock outcrops - no cliffs. They are huge. There is a spring here and a whole story around T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) The spring itself is a walk up a steep climb. It's optional. Here you will find the original water source.... More
