The Valley of the Moon

In the desert of Wadi Rum, known by the Bedouin as the "Valley of the Moon, the landscape seems untouched by the destructive force of humanity, and weather and winds have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers - as so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence. In this timeless place you see Bedouin living as their ancestors have for thousands of years, camping under the stars and traveling by camel along ancient trading routes.
