From the Humeima ruins, you can either head straight for the day’s destination, Jabal Kharazeh, or route through Humeima village along the highway to restock on supplies. If heading to the villages, follow the road back to the town of New Humeima on the Desert Highway. From here, head southeast at a bearing of roughly 160 degrees, walking on the best surface you are able to find towards Jabal Kharazeh.
If heading straight to Jabal Kharazeh from Humeima ruins, head straight at roughly 145 degrees across open country, crossing the desert highway at 8.4km, then continuing straight on the same bearing.
Cross over the shallow sandy Wadi Jdayyel, and see the large Jabal Arga on your left. Head towards Jabal Kharazeh with a huge sandstone arch visible in the middle of the mountain, and cross Wadi Flajeh just before the mountain. A Nabatean cistern is on the backside of the second hill of Jabal Kharazeh, with water year round (off route 2-3km).
New Humeima is on desert highway, with local busses passing the route.
