Welcome to Wadi Rum, a bleak and beautiful place. A land where Bedouin still tend their flocks of sheep and goats, and where camels still graze upon the grasses sprouting from the dry desert sand. Wadi Rum, with its soaring cliffs and ever changing dunes, has captured the hearts and imaginations of many a traveler throughout the ages, from the first Bedouin to graze their flock upon the fresh flowing streams, to the famous T.E. Lawrence who described the allure of this desert so poeticly:
No man can live this life and emerge unchanged. He will carry, however faint, the imprint of the desert, the brand which marks the nomad; and he will have within him the yearning to return, weak or insistent according to his nature. For this cruel land can cast a spell which no temperate clime can match.
So come, let the desert leave its imprint upon you, as it has so many others.
