There are better things to see in Wadi Rum, this seems to draw attention because of the fame gained from the 1962 movie Lawrence of Arabia. The site is lovely, as is everything in Wadi Rum, but the spring itself is disappointing. Most of the year there is no water. atthe spring turn around at look out at the desert, this vi is spectacular!

The spring is disappointing, but the view is good.. You have to climb for a bit though. The connection with Lawrence of Arabia is interesting, but that's it.. it is uninspiring.. save your energy to other amazing sites in Wadi Rum -- there are plenty of them around there!

Climb the mountain for good view, but safe your time looking or the spring, it's not worth it. It's tiny and looks like it's coming out of a pipe.

The wadi rum desert is Beautiful & scenic & I didn't know much about Laurence of Arabia but my visit here has increased my interest. Laurence Spring was one of the places we visited. Very nice & interesting. Just loved the whole wadi rum experience.

This was the most interesting thing we saw in the Wadi Rum, as our driver didn't make much effort to show us much. He spoke no English and just drove us around over the sand, fishtailing back and forth, for 2 hrs. What a disappointment to know we could have hiked to the spring and seen the view! We didn't even know there were hiking areas,

We did rewatch the Lawrence of Arabia movie when we got home and were glad to have stopped at this area of historical interest.
