Two Days scrambling

This tour It is a hiking and easy scrambling progamme that shows you some spectacular views.  You do need to be in reasonable physical condition, but it is neither difficult nor too demanding. The day consists of something adventurous in the morning and an easier trek in the afternoon, usually after a rest midday. You will walk or scramble between four and six hours total in one day. Hiking boots and cotton socks are always preferable for this kind of programme, but you can perfectly well manage with trekking sandals or even trainers.

Day 1 : We head off straight away to the Rakebat Canyon through the massif of Jebel Um Ishrin. The beginning involves scrambling up a big slab, before descending steeply into a narrow ravine – this is “Goat Gully”. When we come out from here, you will realise just how much of a labyrinth exists inside the imposing mountain. Canyons start off in every direction, and you need either a sharp eye for terrain or a good guide with you. The sandstone walls are very impressive, towering above you. After lunch in Wadi Um  Ishrin, we have an easy hike to the Barragh Canyon. The Barragh canyon leads between magnificent cliffs, with high sand dunes heaped up against them. These cliffs are the site of many world class climbing routes, and perhaps a team will be climbing here.

Day 2 :  The next day, we make our way to Jebel Burdah and a climb to the famous Arch. This is easy scrambling, but as in the Rakebat Canyon, the guide will have a rope with him for safety, and the climb should provide no difficulty for active scramblers. Although Jebel Burdah is not very far from Rum Village, the view from the Arch is among the finest to be seen in the whole of the Wadi Rum area. To go up and down again usually takes about 3 or 4 hours.
