This is our latest alpine-like program – climbing Jebel Rum, away from the beaten track, after having done some of the best ‘Bedouin Routes’ in the desert.
Even so when penetrating the unique sanctuary of the ‘red-rose city of Petra’!
It is not only taylor-made for mountaineers, agile on all types of terrain, well trained and keen to experience an outstanding adventure.
But also the most accomplished one regarding the North-South crossing of Jebel Rum (1754m), highest peak of  Wadi Rum Mountains
We are in 2020. It is new – the direct result of our latest explorations as guides, experts in the country for more than thirty years.
Technical level: be at ease in the F4c/5a with sustained up and down scrambling. You should have no problem making rappels on the row.

Upcoming DATES – Spring & Fall 2020 and 2021.
10 days Europe-Europe, 8 full days in the country.
5 days in the mountains and desert, 2 days in Petra, 1 day rest.
