Wadi Rum is well worth a visit. On our first full day, we took a jeep tour which included some short walks through narrow gorges, and easy scrambles up to naturally formed rock arches.

On our second day in Wadi Rum, we hiked up to Jebel Burdah rock bridge, away from other tourists. It was a very peaceful hike as we had the place to ourselves.

Incredible landscapes, so well captured. Love them all. Some of the pictures remind me parts of the Namibian desert.

Thank you! Yes I see what you mean about the Namib desert. I just googled it. Did you go to Deadvlei when you went?
