Following on from the incredible 2018 Toubkal Challenge and 2019 Sahara Desert Trek, we are now launching the third in the series: a fabulous 6 night/7 day challenge trek in the magnificent Wadi Rum, Jordan, celebrating the very special 10th anniversary of 40tude.
The home of several Bedouin tribes, the vast Wadi Rum, the Valley of the Moon, is most famous for its association with British officer T. E. Lawrence, who passed through several times during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18. The trail follows old shepherd paths, weaving its way west across desert wadis and over striped granite mountains. Camping under the start each night, we trek Jordan's highest peak, and our visit to Jordan concludes with a visit to the ancient city of Petra.
Trekking between 22 – 24km per day in the majestic Wadi Rum (a World Heritage site);
Finding dramatic, hidden desert scenery, including sandstone domes, rock formations, and granite and basalt striated mountains;
Experiencing the Bedouin culture and cuisine;
Wild camping beneath spectacular desert skies;
Summiting Um Dami, Jordan’s highest mountain;
Exploring the ancient city of Petra.
