Wadi Rum Desert
To see the Wadi Rum Desert in Jordan, you’d never believe this desolately beautiful area has been inhabited by humans since prehistory. Stark red rock formations, sandstone temples, petroglyphs and blue sky combine in endlessly fascinating ways that stir the soul with their sheer stillness. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has stood in for Mars in the movie Red Planet and, most famously, as the backdrop for the 1962 classic, Lawrence of Arabia.
