We will start at 7am picking you up either at Assala Square or the Lighthouse. Then we head out towards the valley known as Wadi Hamam with an offroad Car. Our certified rock climbing instructor and a Bedouin Guide from the local Muzeina tribe will accompany you. There is going to be tea and coffee made the traditional way over the fire and the bedouin guide will stay with us as there is no reception inside the valley. Around 3pm we will return to drop you off at the Pickup spot again roughly at 4pm.
