Our Tours & Activities
Natural water resources in the Wadi Rum desert are limited to a few springs. Bedouin tending animal herds need water to be available in more places. Therefore they constructed dams in hollow parts in the lower sections of mountains all around the desert. In these hollows, they collect the water which is running from the mountainsides during rainfall. During winter and spring, most reservoirs pretty much fill up. Parts are protected from the heat, slowing down the inevitable evaporation.
