If you are looking for adventure, breathtaking scenery, and good body workout, then Wadi Mujib is the place for you. The flowing water and 20-meter waterfall make it an ideal trekking destination surrounded by beautiful nature. Follow the seething water through the colorful sandstone gorge and enjoy the incredible scenery of the waterfalls.
We will conclude our tour with a delicious lunch at the lowest point on Earth – the Dead Sea, where we will have a dip in the healing waters of the saltiest sea before heading back to Amman.
All you need for this tour is an adventurous spirit and a pair of good boots.
This tour is only available from 01 April to 31 October.
08.00 AM, Amman
10 – 11 hours
We will pick you up from your hotel or residence in Amman and start our 1.5-hour drive to one of the seven nature reserves of the Kingdom of Jordan and a fabulous location – Wadi Mujib Nature, historically known as the biblical Arnon River.
Wadi Al-Mujib Nature Reserve, located in the mountainous landscape east of the Dead Sea with stunning canyons of bizarre shapes and colors & in some places, deep rivers, is the lowest-lying nature reserve in the World.
Constant water flow, provided by elevation differences throughout the entire area and the specific closed atmosphere of the gorge, serve ideal conditions for the growth of many different types of plants and animals.
Choosing a wet route, you are guaranteed to need to enter the water up to your chest or even swim a couple of meters, so take a swimsuit and a bag in which your valuables (camera, phone, etc.) will not get wet. An extra dry set of clothing may be needed & comfortable, closed shoes that fit the foot well are a must.
On day 2, after having breakfast, we will head towards the foothills of Gilead Mountain to visit Jerash, the ancient city of the Roman Empire. It is one of the largest and well-preserved sites of Roman architecture outside of Italy, with the grandeur of the colonnaded street, Oval Plaza, the Nymphaeum, and the Temple of Artemis.
Afterward, we will drive towards the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, famous for its rich minerals that have medicinal properties. Acting as a health spa, the mineral concentration in the mud is used for therapeutic and beauty treatments. In fact, Queen Cleopatra and Sheba both were said to have known the value of the site and used it. Due to too high salinity, the water doesn’t bear any form of life, and hence the name. Put on some mud, relax in the salty water, and float on your back. Just don’t dunk your head! Finally, we will head back to Amman to spend the night.
