NIce place

IT is amazing place for those who love desert and mountains, but it is hot there so it's preferable to go between end of Oct until end of April or 1st of May

We spent around 2 hours inside the canyon enjoying... More

We did a day trip with a Bedouin guide to the Colored Canyon and I highly recommend it. Its a very easy hike once you're there, though getting there requires driving off road a lot so if you don't do well in bumpy cars be careful. The landscape is beautiful and we were lucky because no one else was there... More
