Mountain trekking

Treks involve 3-4 hours, 5-6 hours or 7-8 hours of walking per day. Either camels carry the equipment, food, water and other supplies or they are carried by the trekkers and water is obtained at wells and natural springs along the way. The treks can last from 1 day up to 15 days and we can tailor-make a trek for you if you wish. Accomodation is either in the open or in tents, bedouin houses or shelters and caves, depending on the season and your preferences.
