Day 5: We drive southwards to Jebel Um Adaami (1832m), close to the border with Saudi Arabia. Our climb to the top of this rocky mountain involves a round trip of a little over 3 hours. After lunch, we trek across the desert to our camp.

We have a full day in Petra with a qualified guide. There is also the option to visit Petra at night later this evening. Overnight at our hotel in Wadi Musa (Petra).
Day 8: We spend the morning at Petra, which gives us the opportunity to do some independent exploration of this amazing city and its rock architecture. Then, after lunch, we transfer to Amman Airport, arriving in the early evening, where KE Land Only package services end.
