Not a big deal

its a cool landmark / name but in reality theres not a huge amount to see here. The landscape around it is stunning, focus on that! Not the small spring trickle!

Of course, the story of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) is a romanticised tale. But this opportunity to see something of his experiences was wonderful.

This is one of the 7 to 10 things to do in Wadi Rum. The most spectacular parts of this place are the views and the green layers of rocks in the near by mountain. But don't limit yourself to this place, explore the many other different spots across this incredible site

Sadly unimpressive. A water trough filled by a pipe (dry) and a sparse line of green on the mountain with a tree about 100' up and no path. We didn't bother to go up.

Our first tour stop was Lawrence's Spring. We saw folks up at the top, but there was no clear path or trail to get up there, just ALOT of boulders and rocks. You'll have to forge your own path, I'd suggest to the center-left on the way up and down. But the risk it totally worth the reward! Bring some... More

If you are feeling adventurous and want to climb half way up a cliff over difficult terrain to see a small watercourse then this is for you. There's nothing much too it though.

It was a bit of a let down. We've climbed that steep mountain under an inclement sum just to be greeted to a spring with just some water. It was good however because we like to climb, the view and the abundance ou Agama lizards.

We stopped here as part of our tour. It's fun to scramble up the rocks - about 30 minutes round trip. There's no particular path. Up at the top, is a tree and a very small springs. Views are nothing special. If you don't want to scramble up, and it's not particularly arduous, no reason to stop here.

A stop for the guide or driver to have tea. Otherwise you can just look over the parking lot at the rock face. Best go on further south.
