Day 5 : Jordon
After breakfast – Wadi Rum, 2 hour 4x4 Jeep Ride – Wadi Rum puts life into perspective. "Rum's glory would not let a man waste himself in feverish regrets," said T E Lawrence (of Arabia), whose descriptions have immortalised the place for so many of us.
Nothing much has changed in the 90 years since Lawrence was here. The timelessness, the silence, the scale of it all; sheer cliffs, limitless sand and the blood red of approaching night. So any tour of Rum must capture some of this magic to be worthwhile. It's almost impossible in half a day -- but if that's all the time you have then we will try. Better to stretch it to full day; at least we can stop to breath the air and touch the rocks and enjoy a cup of bedouin tea and wonder why and how people live here. Overnight Dead Sea area.
Day 6 : Jordon
After breakfast – Dead Sea, enjoy floating & mud Bathing – Bethany -The Baptism Site (Arabic: el-Maghtas) on the Jordan side of the Jordan River is one of the most important recent discoveries in biblical archaeology.
