Furon Ras al Feid

As we pass the entrance to Wadi Ghweir you'll climb up through the mountains on a steep and challenging section of the trek, but extremely rewarding with stunning and wonderful views towards the fascinating Wadi Araba Desert.

DAY 4

Gbor Whedat

After a good breakfast we follow a path of Bedouin shepherd trails contouring the Sharah Mountains. The terrain undulates as we experience astonishing views on the most remote sections of the trail, trekking along infrequently travelled sections that are harder to identify. Our expert guides will take us through a myriad of trail options to safely lead us through the peaks of black mountains overlooking the trail. An absolutely spectacular trekking day to our camp at Gbour Whedat.

DAY 5

Little Petra

Today our second day on the trails we enjoy some of the most un-spoilt and stark terrain with views over the Petra Mountains. The closer we get to the ruins of Petra the more sites that we come across. Our guides will give full explanations of the sites that we pass on our trek including Ba’ajah ruins, the Nabataeans wine and olive presses, water tanks, wells and the rock carved facades, all before arriving at our camp today close to Little Petra. This mini version of Petra is a real treat as we spend our time discovering the ruins with far fewer tourists than we will come across at the main Petra sites.

DAY 6

Petra

For the highlight of our challenge we trek from our campsite on relatively flat terrain to the 2000 year old city of Petra. The vast complex stretches over several kilometres and was a strategic centre for the old silk and spice routes which crossed the Middle-East, Asia and Africa. Petra prospered for centuries with a population of about 25,000 at the height of its power. The Nabateans built Petra on a terrace pierced from east to west by Wadi Musa (Moses) one of the places where Moses struck a rock and ‘water gushed forth’. The valley is enclosed by sandstone cliffs, veined with shades of red, purple and pink, out of which the city’s monuments and temples were hewn. On arrival at the site we climb for an hour up the well-worn steps to the Monastery, Petra’s most awe-inspiring monument. Tonight our hotel is a welcome delight and we enjoy a celebratory meal to mark the end of an incredible challenge.

Here at an altitude of minus 430m we find ourselves at the lowest place on earth. We have a completely free day to enjoy floating in the  salt waters of the Dead Sea, having a mud bath spa session and generally relaxing and recuperating from the last tough five days trekking.
