Wadi Rum

About the city

People have lived in Rum for thousands of years, struggling to survive in its harsh environment. They have been hunters, pastoralists, farmers and traders, as Rum is close to national borders. Even the famous Nabateans once occupied Rum, leaving behind several structures, including a temple. Local people gained notoriety more recently when they joined the arab revolt forces under the leadership of king Faisal and fought along with Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab Revolt (1917/18) to fight the occupying Turkish and German armies. Lawrence himself makes many references to Wadi Rum in his book ‘The Seven Pillars of Wisdom’, a title apparently inspired by one of Rum’s imposing mountains. The exploits of Lawrence have become part of local folklore, and some popular tourist sites are named after him, although whether he used these exact sites is open to debate. Virtually all the people living in and around Wadi Rum today are of Bedouin origin and, until recently, led nomadic lives, relying on their goat herds. They are resourceful, hospitable people who are largely responsible for developing Wadi Rum as a tourist destination. Recognizing the unique natural and cultural history of Wadi Rum and the vital importance of tourism to the local economy, the government of Jordan declared Wadi Rum a protected area in 1998. With support from the World Bank they commissioned the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, a national NGO, to prepare a conservation plan and build a team of local people to manage the area. This team is now under the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority and is pioneering ways to restore and safeguard Rum’s sensitive desert habitats from ever-increasing human pressure.

Stargazing with Rum Sky

day 0 - Ticket

Now it is time for you to enjoy the beautiful night skies.

Located in one of the most beautiful parts of Jordan, RumSky allows visitors to enjoy the starry nights of Wadi Rum.

 

Our guided tour program allows you to learn more about the Universe we live in. Living in lively cities makes it more difficult to witness the magnificence of the skies and heavens. Through the innovation of science, we are able to get a little closer to the hidden wonders of the Universe. Stars, planets, nebulae, all are within your reach with RumSky. An entrepreneurial project was started by a group of Jordanians, using state of the art technology and mobile Observatory apps.

RumSky has a consulting partner in South Africa providing knowledge and consultancy: Sterland Skygazing. With RumSky, stars are within reach!

 

1.   We start by picking up of our guest from all the local camps in Disi Area. At the end of the show we send our guests back to their camps. Our ticket price includes transportation unless you are staying outside Disi (Rum, Aqaba, Etc).

2.   Adventure start with a 20 minute presentation that takes you on a journey that sheds light on the cosmos. Anchored in our solar system we venture out in the the Milky Way and then travel to all parts of the Universe.

3.   As the presentation comes to a close we step out into the real world and begin our trek across the sky. Follow the light of the green laser as it takes you around the night sky, then get your first amazing look at the sky through the optics of our telescopes, opening up the wonders of the Universe for you to see with your own eyes.

4.   As part of this experience you will walk away with the keys of the ancients about reading the stars and navigation. Have you ever wondered about the constellations? Let us look at them through the eyes of our forefathers, and see as they did.

5.   The night sky is filled with many wonders, most of which are invisible to the naked eye. See for yourselves through our telescopes that which you have only seen in pictures. The grandeur of the stars and gasses that make up the galaxies and nebulae that fill our skies.

6.   After enjoying the evening under the stars, how about a memorable group photo by our professional astrophotographers with the stars as your background. Photos will be uploaded onto our social media platforms for you to have a picture perfect memory of the evening.

7.   Our show lasts for 90 minutes, but that does not mean that the night has ended. Those who wish to stay longer are more than welcome (we don't go to bed early!).
