Your tour ends where you may watch the sunset, then go for a wander or relax around the campfire, before enjoying a traditional Bedouin dinner with tea. After dinner, conversation often lingers late around the campfire, as we gaze up at the magnificent night sky.  Your guides can also sometimes be convinced to share traditional Bedouin stories.

 

Day 2:After the Breakfast,  The day starts with a half-hour transfer southwards to Jebel Al Hash. Here, we start out hiking through an interesting rocky valley with some scattered vegetation and over easy rocky slabs as our route winds and turns to the plateau beneath the highest rocky piles of this massive mountain. Over there, you will enjoy a 360 degree extending across the desert landscape. We then start descending towards the west through another rocky valley to complete the trip around Jebel Al Hash in around 4 hours. There are some great rock colors, blues and purples, as we finally reach a sandy Wadi and meet up with our guide for lunch.

After the lunch we make Sand boarding for 1 hour then we will come back to Rum village .
