About the Event
Climbers from all over the world dream about climbing the sandstone peaks of the Wadi Rum area – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – but few of them have the occasion of transforming that dream into reality. The remarkable historical heritage, a warm climate, off-the-beaten track climbing routes, and extremely hospitable locals are just some of the many features that make Jordan a unique and authentic rock-climbing destination. Prepare to dive into the unknown for a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the precious support and competence of the Bedouins of Wadi Rum – your guides for the trip – who have decade-long history and expertise in climbing in the country.
