  • Description


    My name is Omar and I live in Wadi Rum, Jordan. I am a mountain guide here in the Wadi Rum protected area. Many people visit this area to hike and to see how the bedouins live.

    I run a climbing business that takes visitors on different excursions around the area. I offer hiking, trekking and scrambling options to all my guests as well as jeep tours and camp stays. In my free time i go exploring the desert and you are welcome to come with me and bring out your inner indiana jones! :)

    You are most welcome here!
