When to Visit
While the peak season for visiting Wadi Rum falls in early spring (especially March and April) and late autumn (October to November), both seasons featuring pleasant temperatures and lots of sunshine, a visit in Wadi Rum is highly rewarding any month of the year. The winter months (December to February) see occasional snow on the mountains as well as strong winds and spectacular cloudscapes, while the summer season (May to September) enjoys long, mostly cloudless days in which temperatures can soar beyond 40°C.
