Located near the Nabatean Temple, this wonderful trail leads through two valleys with a spring, palm trees and great views over the visitors center and the village in Wadi Rum, Jordan.

This is a great walk if you do not mind rock scrambling to see spectacular views of the magnificent wadis and mountains.

The temple was discovered in Wadi Rum by Savignac in 1932. Savignac and Horsfield undertook the first excavations in 1933 and recorded Nabatean, Greek and Thamudic inscriptions and graffiti at the temple and at Ain Shallalah (the “Real” Lawrence of Arabia Springs).
