Lunch en route at halfway point, after lunch pass the encryptions and onto the Umm Furth bridge. Climbing up to the bridge is at client own risk as no defined access. The ground is generally flat and the group should be able to trek at 3-4 km per hour. Camp is approx 1km on from umm Furth bridge.

Overnight camp 


We leave camp early so we can complete our long morning trek of approximately 18km, trekking over the vast flat plains and crossing over the dry river channel, .we head south towards Umm Dami, Jordan's highest mountain. After a hearty lunch and a chance to rest our legs we set off on our mountain trek. The first part of the ascent is steep and we need watch our footing on the steep large boulders, this is not a technical climb and our guides will be there to help you.  It takes between 1.5 - 2 hours to reach the summit and we will be rewarded with views across the Rum and over to the Red Sea and south into Saudi Arabia. After many photo opportunities under the Jordanian flag we descend to our camp at the base of the mountain.

Overnight camp 

Leaving Umm Dami behind us we start our journey north towards the majestic canyons, surrounded by unbelievably vast towering rocks.  As we head into the canyons we will  need to negotiate a steady and sandy climb before we reach our lunch stop.

We continue our journey and can enjoy climbing the large rock in the centre of the plain where we can find the Bedouin dams.  We will be able to see our camp from a high viewing point with views across the valley floor.

 We continue to head North passing through the Burrah and Lawrence canyons. The route takes us through the narrow canyon paths, look out for the mushroom shaped rock on the route to our camp.
