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.

It's located inside the desert. Can be reached on foot or by jeeps. Lawrence was spotted washing himself on the site during time he was living in Wadi Rum

I don't get why some attractions within attractions have their own insert to rate. Lawrence's Spring is in Wadi Rum. If you go on a tour, they will take you to it. To go here just for this... don't do it. but do go to wadi rum for the experiance.

It's quite a steep climb up. The spring itself is unimpressive but the view is great and it's good fun going up and down if you like that type of thing.

The Lawrence's Spring get its name from Lawrence of Arabia. Do not expect to see a roaring spring but it is a great location to take some nice pictures and some cool ones with the camels that are there.

Bet enjoyed when you are thirsty because the 20 minute climb is arduous but rewarding. The smell of wild mint encouraged us to get to the spring and the reward was the beautiful, cool, water.

If you visit here, don't just stay in the base, climb to the top and the wonderful view will worth it. The climbing might looks difficult but it's quite easy and my daughter aged 8 years old made it without complaint, so this should not be a problem for most of the people.

It is worth the scramble up the hill to the source of the spring as you get a great view of Wadi Rum and the staff at the base are very hospitable.
