The dessert of Wādī Ramm, known also as “Valley of the Moon”, is the largest desert valley (wadi) in Jordan. This cut into the sandstone and granite rock desert valley has been used as a background setting of extra-terrace planets surface in numerous science-fiction films and since 2005 has become one of UNESCO’s protected World Heritage Sites.
