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.
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.
Later in the afternoon we will arrive at one of the private beaches on the Dead Sea coast, where we will have lunch & use the opportunity to practice one of the most unusual types of recreation – swimming on the surface of the Dead Sea. It is impossible to drown here due to the high salinity of the water (260-300%), but you can freely lie on its surface and read a newspaper. There is no point in diving either – most likely it will not succeed.
The uniqueness of the Dead Sea has been known for centuries. This is the only place in the world with a special combination of exceptional healing benefits: special solar radiation and climatic conditions, an oxygen-rich atmosphere, a salty sea rich in minerals, thermal mineral springs and mineral mud. In the old days, the water and salt of the Dead Sea were exported to Italy by the Roman nobility. Judean asphalt is a bituminous liquid that rises to the surface of the lake and was used for industrial and medical purposes. From the plants growing on the shores of the lake, and especially from the balsam, valuable and prestigious cosmetics, perfumes, and medicines were produced. They were of such economic importance that wars were even fought over them. Historical Fact – Mark Antony conquered the Dead Sea area for Cleopatra.
