One for those with a little more time, it takes about five days to hike, camping out in the desert, accompanied by some of the world’s best stargazing. Bedouin camps offer tea and souvenirs en route. They were some of the first climbers in Wadi Rum outside of the native Bedouins, and helped develop tourism in the area.
