Wadi Rum

wadi rum in July?

I am going to be camping for a night in Wadi Rum in mid-July. Is the heat going to be unbearable? Is this crazy to even attempt this in July? I really can't go another time and didn't want to miss it. thanks!

I've been to Wadi Rum this January and it was pretty hot - approx. 30C, so imagine July... it's beautiful though so if there's no other way, I'd suggest you go. Try also a night in the Dubai desert - it's ten times better!

Right now, the daytime temp is around 40°C + but in the night I guess it can go down to 30°C.
It is bearable, moreover it is only one night !
Take care

The nights are wonderful at this time of year, don't miss it!

What will you be doing during the day? And are you with a Bedouin guide ? As already said be a bit careful about camping alone, you have to know where to sleep (not too near to trees because of snakes) and especially make a camp fire!

Nights can be rather windy but it won't be too hot.
You'll enjoy sunset end sunrise and If you stay in a genuine bedouin camp, you'll be singing and dancing for e few hours after sunset, so you'll be rather tired and sleep well, I suppose.
And if you can't sleep, admire the millions of stars above you
It'll certainly be a wonderful experience.

Great, thanks for everyone's thoughts. I'll definitely spend a night there then - since I'm planning this trip last minute I am hiring a guide through Atlas tours to take care of arranging the Jordan leg of my trip (rest of time will be spent in Israel). I think during the day i will just do the jeep tour w/a Bedouin guide, and definitely won't be camping alone - will be staying in one of the camps nearby (not sure which one yet...). I'm generally not a fan of camping but this sounds like a great experience!
