Jebel Burdah hiking

Hi there,

we plan to hike burdah rock bridge, how much time will it take to just get to the bridge and then return? How difficult/ dangerous is it?

Also seems the bridge is just part of Jebel Burdah, if we plan to hike Jebel Burdah (i.e. to the top), how much time will it take? And how difficult is it?

Your help is highly appreciated!

Hello Zysisu,

Hiking Burdah rock bridge takes around 3 hours up and down. Together with driving there, it will take all morning. The hike is moderate but involves some serious scramble especially near the rock bridge itself. Most guides only hike up to the rock bridge. Going to the top will take at least another 2 hours.

Note that If you are afraid of heights, Burdah rock bridge is not for you. Nor will Rakhabat Canyon be. In that case, Jabal Al-Hash and Jabal Um ad Dami are good alternatives.

Wishing you a great time in Wadi Rum,
