Jordan is a magical country for climbing, and mainly around the village of Wadi Rum, located in the middle of the desert.
The contrast is flagrant between the arrival at the airport, where everything is done to welcome the tourist, and the atypical village of Wadi Rum. Simplicity in its purest form, but frightening efficiency.
From the village, the desert opens its doors, and the possibilities are immense. Whether historical routes to climb to the top of the jebels, or routes fully equipped for sport climbing, everything is there.
In the evening, you will be seduced by the warm welcome you will receive in the village, or in their camp in the middle of the desert, a totally exotic trip, full of sensations.
