Jordan desert- Charity trek to Petra

Jordan desert- Charity trek to Petra Overview

COUNTRY: Jordan
MAX. ALTITUDE: 0m
CATEGORY: Fundraising
DIFFICULTY:
P2
T1

The iconic image of Jordan is of the great city of Petra set amid the endless dunes of the desert. The reality is far richer. While half the country is indeed covered by desert, the other half sits on the Fertile Crescent that stretches from the Nile Delta and down towards the Persian Gulf.

We spend 9 days trekking a desert route, crossed by the nomadic Bedouin people and their livestock for generations. We will be trekking over dry wadis, open sandy desert and rocky desert known as 'hamada', but also encountering hot springs, roman remains, crusader castles, neolithic houses and green valleys fed by streams, before reaching the incredible city of Petra.

The scenery will blow you away: by day the mesmerising shapes of the sandstone walls of the canyons and gorges come alive with the changing light, glowing reds and orange, and at night we camp in Bedouin tents and have dinner by candlelight whilst the incredible clarity of the desert sky provides an unrivalled view of the stars
