Adventure seekers

Wadi Rum is attracting more and more adventure seekers. It offers some of the finest rock climbing in the world and is a spectacular place for desert trekking and safaris (camels, horses and vehicles). Most adventure tourists stay in and around the protected area from 2 to 12 nights, in small organized groups. Guide services, campsites and logistical support are all available locally, through independent operators.

Like all visitors to the protected area, adventurers need to be aware of zoning schemes and other regulations. Climbing, for example, is not allowed in every area of Wadi Rum. Emergency services are also very limited. Guidelines on best practice and emergency procedures for climbers and other adventure seekers were produced in 2003 and can be accessed through the Library link
