太阳落在月亮谷上 The sun sets on the Valley of the Moon

Star Wars Day

This otherworldly desert landscape in Jordan might look familiar to fans of the 'Star Wars' films, especially today on Star Wars Day, an annual celebration every May 4 of all things 'Star Wars.' Wadi Rum, aka Valley of the Moon, in southern Jordan, stood in for the moon Jedha in 'Rogue One,' and for the planet Pasaana in 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.' It is easy to see why this desolate landscape was chosen to mimic an alien world.

Wadi Rum ('wadi' means 'valley' in Arabic) is the largest valley in Jordan, cut through sandstone and granite formations. A UNESCO World Heritage protected area, Wadi Rum is singled out for its ancient rock carvings and archeological remains. Various human cultures have lived in this valley since prehistoric times.

Today, the valley is one of the most popular destinations in Jordan for tourists, particularly rock climbers and hikers. Summer temperatures routinely reach the 90s, but this being the desert, temperatures cool considerably at night. The Zalabieh tribe of Bedouins call the valley home. They act as guides for tourists and coordinate activities like camel rides, horseback rides, and camping. A major coastal city, Aqaba, is less than 40 miles away, so if you'd like to visit Wadi Rum, put away your hyperdrive—you don't have to leave the galaxy.

星球大战日

对于《星球大战》电影的粉丝来说,约旦这片超凡脱俗的沙漠景观可能看起来很熟悉,尤其是今天的《星球大战日》,每年5月4日都是《星球大战》的年度庆典约旦南部的Wadi Rum又名月球谷,在《侠盗一号》中代表月球杰达,在《星球大战:天行者的崛起》中代表行星帕萨纳很容易理解为什么选择这片荒凉的土地来模拟外星世界。

Wadi Rum(“Wadi”在阿拉伯语中的意思是“山谷”)是约旦最大的谷,穿过砂岩和岗岩地层。Wadi Rum是联合国教科文组织世界遗产保护区,因其古老的石刻和考古遗迹而被选中。从史前时代起,各种人类文化就生活在这个山谷里。

今天,河谷是约旦最受游客欢迎的目的地之一,尤其是攀岩者和徒步旅行者。夏季气温通常会达到90年代,但这里是沙漠,夜间气温会相当低。贝多因人的萨拉比耶部落称山谷为家。他们充当游客的向导,协调骑骆驼、骑马和露营等活动。一个主要的沿海城市亚喀巴离这里不到40英里,所以如果你想去Wadi Rum,把你的超速引擎收起来,你不必离开银河系。
