Following breakfast, we bid farewell to the stony "Hamada" desert and embark on our trek, skirting the base of the mountain. Our path leads us to the trailhead of an ancient Bedouin migration route, which involves a steep ascent over rocks and small boulders through a winding track ascending high into the mountain. This segment, lasting about 3 hours, can be challenging but rewards with panoramic views westwards of the captivating Wadi Araba desert.
Upon reaching the pinnacle of a high saddle, we are treated to some of the trek's most breathtaking scenery before descending along a narrow goat track to the river valley of Wadi Feid. Here, we take a well-deserved break, refreshing and cooling down in the cool waters—an ideal spot for lunch. Our journey continues as we walk upstream, navigating through a lush garden of oleander, willow, tamarisk, and reed. Beyond this, we traverse a dry riverbed surrounded by vibrant sandstone outcrops until we reach our camping site. Our crew awaits with Bedouin tea, and after a brief rest, we enjoy a Bedouin-style evening meal. Then take the pick- up car to Little Petra for Dinner and overnight camping.
