Petra – Wadi Rum – Dead Sea
After breakfast in Petra, we drive to the Wadi Rum, where black and wind scalped hills stand like foreboding sentinels upon the pale sands, it is often described as the “Valley of the Moon”. Here we take a 4WD excursion into the desert where the Bedouin have lived since ancient times. We then continue to the Dead Sea. At over 400m below sea level, is the lowest point on the face of the earth, and is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost other-worldly beauty. Although sparsely populated and serenely quiet now, the area is believed to have been home to five Biblical cities: Sodom, Gomorrah, Adman, Zebouin and Zoar (Bela). We may take a swim in the salty waters or just relax by the seaside. Overnight SPA Hotel. B,L
