The majestic landscape of Wadi Rum desert in south Jordan is well known around the world for its towering red sandstone walls and orange sand dunes leaning against them; and now for their great spans! The Wadi Rum Reserve is located 290 Km south of the capitol city of Amman or 40 Km north of Agaba (Red Sea). The Rum village at the bottom of the huge Rum mountain is the entrance gate to visit this beautiful country - a protected area of the royal society for conservation of nature. A bedouin jeep tour can be arranged from Rum village to visit the arches of Wadi Rum desert. One of the magificient arch in the world is located in the reserve on top of Djabel Burdah (Burdah mountain). This wonder is called "Rock Bridge of Burdah". The route to the arch top is difficult to follow and requieres skill at route finding. So a bedouin guide is highly recommended to get to. Find in this gallery several great spans of this area.
