Then, our driver will transfer you for about 50 minutes to your hotel in Amman and helps you with the check-in. You will have the rest of the day to yourself and we will start our adventure the next day.
Today in the morning we will go to Mount Nebo, which is the scene of many biblical canonical texts, the supposed burial place of Prophet Moses and the place from where God showed him the Promised Land. From the height of the mountain, you can see the panoramic valley of the Jordan River, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem, the ancient Moabite plains stretching east of the Jordan River.
Then, we will drive to Wadi Mujib, where you will walk along the Siq Trail, a breathtaking sandstone canyon. The experience begins with a laddered platform that provides access to the passive river with nice photo spots between the naturally carved walls. Then you will adventure into an opposing stream lazy river with few spots that will challenge your hiking techniques. At the end, you will find a relaxing spot next to a water fall where you can enjoy the little fish that eat the dead skin from your feet. Enjoy the water ride & gliding through the river while admiring the sky and wall formation. To complete the experience, we will have to return through the same path. The trail is fun, but it does require a bit of strength and hiking abilities. Finally, you will be transferred to your Dead Sea Hotel, where you will spend your night at the lowest point on Earth.
Today after breakfast we will visit another favorite tourist destination, a hidden gem down a challenging road – Wadi bin Hammad.
The hiking will take around 4 hours, where you will enjoy the charming oasis in the middle of the desert with a flowing river, hanging gardens & small waterfalls.
Half of the time you will walk in a warm water of the ankle-high river getting a thrill out of the surrounding beauty.
Our next destination is one of Jordan’s most remarkable sights, with a history that can easily fill more than one historical thriller. We are talking about the Al Karak or Crac des Moabites fortress, covered with myths and legends, built by crusaders from Europe about eight hundred years ago.
For centuries, the fortress remained a strategically important point, giving the Crusaders complete control over the surrounding area.
Important trade routes crossed here, providing the rulers of the city with good income.
El-Karak is one of the examples of a fortress that has absorbed the features of the planning and construction of the defense of the Crusaders, Ayyubids and Mamluks and is worthy of your attention.
We finish our exhausting day with dinner and an overnight stay in the heart of Dana Biosphere Reserve.
On the 4th day, you will hike through the Dana nature reserve, a system of valleys and mountains that descends from an altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level down to the Arabia Valley desert.
The reserve is in two main biogeographic zones and in four vegetation zones.
A variety of amazing landscapes open to the eyes of travelers – only here you can simultaneously see forested alpine, rocky slopes and golden sands dunes. Nature is represented in all its diversity, here you can see quite rare plant species. About seven hundred species of plants are registered in the reserve, and 285 species of animals are waiting for their turn to be studied by scientists. The discovery of 45 endangered animal species at Dana Reserve made it a place of world importance.
However, not only the wildlife attracts the reserve. This part of Jordan is also famous for its archaeological and cultural sites. About 100 archaeological discoveries were made here, including the ancient coal mines of Wadi Feynan, considered one of the most important monuments in Jordan, discovered during excavations outside Petra, were presented to the world.
Our next stop is the splendid landscape of Little Petra and Siq Al Barid, a modest gorge that leads into the famous area of carved tombs and monuments.
Finally, we will have a short ride to your Petra hotel to spend the night.
On the 5th day, we will visit the mysterious and unusual rocky city which was even mentioned in the Bible.
It was here that Moses extracted water from the rock, and the local stream is still called Wadi Musa, which means “the river of Moses”.
We are talking about the unusual, ancient, rock-hewn city of Petra, which for many centuries has amazed the mind with its majestic appearance and pink-red color of all its buildings.
In ancient times, the city was located at the intersection of two important trade routes: one connected the Red Sea with Damascus, the other – the Persian Gulf with Gaza off the Mediterranean coast.
Land trade gradually weakened and Petra lost its influence in the region after the Romans opened sea trade routes to the East.
A local guide will give you a short introduction of this unique place as you walk through the Siq, the narrow canyon with picturesque colors, leading you to the wonderful city of Petra. Explore the historical sites, including the Street of Facades, the Royal Tombs, the Theater, and Qasr Al Bint. You will have plenty of time to explore or climb the 800 stairs to the Monastery El Deir, enjoying the amazing views of Wadi Araba.
After Petra sightseeing, you’ll be transferred to one of the most beautiful deserts in the World – Wadi Rum for dinner & overnight at a campsite.
On the sixth day, board our 4×4 Jeep and let’s take a journey through the world’s most impressive desert landscape, timeless and untouched by civilization – Wadi Rum.
During our 3-hour tour of this amazing place, timeless and untouched by civilization, we will stop at the unique arches and canyons formed as a result of the influence of the scorching sun and restless winds.
It is equally interesting for both rock climbers and ordinary tourists keen on history and geography.
Some of the rock paintings on the territory of the Wadi Rum reserve are more than four thousand years old and since 2011 the Wadi Rum desert has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
