One of the most popular hikes, the climb of Jebel Burdah takes just 3-4hrs. The route is mostly easy, with only a few sections requiring a bit of scrambling and use of your hands. Near the top, you are rewarded with close-up views of Burdah Rock Bridge, Wadi Rum’s largest natural arch, which you may then walk across. The views of Wadi Rum from the top of Jebel Burdah are breathtaking, and make the hike well worthwhile. Details and program Jebel Burdah.
