Burdah rock bridge

Wadi Rum desert is the largest wadi (valley) in Jordan. The valley is surrounded by red and yellow sandstone and granite mountains. Over time the wind carved out the weaker parts of the sandstone. Leaving the harder rock behind in all different shapes and sizes. The most striking of these formations are the rock bridges. Several of these bridges can be seen around the area.

Three of the most famous rock bridges in Wadi Rum desert are:

  • Little bridge
  • Umm Fruth rock bridge
  • Burdah rock bridge

Jabal Burdah is located in the southeast of the protected area. On the north ridge, stands the 35 meter high Burdah rock bridge. It is considered one of the highest natural arches in the world. And one of the most spectacular sites in Wadi Rum.
