Wadi Rum is a desert with sandstone and granite rocks located northeast of Aqaba in southwestern Jordan. It features a varied desert landscape consisting of narrow gorges, natural arches, cliffs, massive landslides and caverns.

Wadi Rum has been inhabited by many human cultures since prehistoric times. It is a natural and cultural site of the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The movie "Lawrence of Arabia" as well as parts of some other movies were filmed in this desert area.
