DAY 1
Full Day Desert Tour
This day is our Full Day Desert Tour, following the full day route visiting the main valley sites of the Protected Area.

DAY 2 
Jebel Khasch Hike
After a night in the desert we drive south through the largely deserted southern valleys to Jebel Khasch, a high ridge stretching east to west. We walk along the top of the ridge for 3-4 hours, admiring the views of Wadi Rum to the north and Saudi Arabia to the south. When we come down from the ridge we have lunch.
