Jabal Rum Crossing, a Bedouin Route in Wadi Rum

Crossing Jabal Rum (1734 mt) west to east, the second highest peak in Jordan, following the Bedouin Routes on a mountaineering adventure.

Giulio Aprin

Jabal Rum or Jabel Rum, with its highest peak at 1734 mt, is a massif located in the Wadi Rum desert, a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan popular for its martian landscape and its rock formations.

This group of mountains fits into one of the most beautiful landscape contexts of the area.

In this area there are many multi-pitch climbing routes, hiking routes and alpine routes, also specifically called bedouin routes like this one we did, because of their context.
