Our Tours & Activities
The natural water resources in the Wadi Rum desert are limited to a few natural springs only. When the Romans ruled in this area, they built some reservoirs. The dams are constructed from the typical big Roman stones, using the hollow parts in the lower parts of mountains as a basin. Water running from the mountainsides during rainfall collects in the pool. Partly protected from the sun and heat; the inevitable evaporation is slowed down. Nowadays, these dams are still used and maintained by the Bedouin.
