We will reach our destination – the entrance to a vast and lush, non-touristic Wadi – after a 40 minute drive.
This Wadi is lined with the colorful hills so typical for the Sinai. In between those stony hills we will find a beautiful sand dune which can be conquered if you want to. After that we will pass a Bedouin’s drinking water fountain.
Through a narrow, rocky Wadi we will get to a huge sandy area lined with smaller hills, canyons and the rock caves of Machrum. We will then enter the cave of the big Machrum via a small sand dune.
After a little break we will hike to the three most colourful canyons of Machrum to explore them.
On request we could do a further stop at the small Machrum on our return journey. Here we can visit the mysterious pre-historic buildings called Nawamis. Indicated by findings such as shell bracelets, colourful pearls, cans and tools made from copper and bones, it is assumed that those constructions were graves built in the Copper Age (4000 to 3150 B.C.)
At the big Machrum we will regain our strength with freshly-baked bread of the Bedouins and tea.
Hiking in the desert is exhausting, but you will also gain a lot: The Sinai will compensate all your efforts with amazing views over the beautiful landscape!.
The huge sand dunes are an extraordinary experience – for man and animals alike!
