Connecting the two legendary sites of Petra and Wadi Rum is a week-long trek across one of the longest stretches of wilderness on the Jordan Trail. Here in the empty, high-elevation desert, stargazing is at its best, and silent contemplation comes naturally. Beginning with deep, rugged wadis and leading into open, sandy plains surrounded by otherworldly sandstone buttes, this segment of the trail takes you deep into the places where humans seldom go. While Wadi Rum may offer visitors a taste of desert silence, the trek into it is the real thing.
