10 Attractions in 3 Days

First Jordan Attraction : Wadi Al-Mujib Siq Trail (Summer Only)

At 410 meters below sea level, the Mujib Biosphere Reserve is the lowest nature reserve on Earth. Its rugged and spectacular mountains border the Dead Sea coast and are dissected by several river-filled canyons that offer the best river and adventure hikes in Jordan. The breathtaking scenery and the challenge of negotiating Mujib’s fast-flowing rivers make the Reserve one of Jordan’s most popular natural attractions.

Mujib Siq Trail - This trail is skipped on Winter time (November  To March)

(April 1 – October 31): Fully  guided with this package.

Grade: Easy to moderate, depending on the season.

Time: 2 - 3 hours

Starting time: 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Requirements: Must be at least 18 years old;  have a reasonable level of fitness.

Description: The trail starts at the Adventures Center near the Mujib Bridge, where you will take the cantilevered walkway over the dam and follow the course of the river between towering sandstone cliffs to the base of a large waterfall. Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, the gorge may contain pools deep enough for swimming. This is an ideal walk to take slowly and enjoy the cool water and shade, especially in the heat of the summer.

Second Jordan Attraction : Dana Nature Reserve

Dana Biosphere Reserve is Jordan's largest nature reserve, located in south-central Jordan. Dana Biosphere Reserve was founded in 1989 in the area in and around the Dana village and Wadi Dana comprising 308 square kilometres ( This is a quick stop on the part of the reserve for taking photos and continue - No hiking or trekking activity is planned ) .

Third Jordan Attraction : Shobak Castle

Part of the great beacon chain of Crusader fortresses, Shobak Castle is by far the most lonely. Built in 1115 AD by Baldwin I, who later built Karak, it was originally known as Mont Realis (Montreal) and was the first outpost of the kingdom of Jerusalem in the Crusader district of Outer Jordain. Situated on an isolated knoll overlooking the trade routes that ran through the wadi below, Shobak is breathtaking.

Fourth Jordan Attraction : Little Petra

Little Petra : also known as Siq al-Barid, literally "the cold canyon") is an archaeological site located north of Petra and the town of Wadi Musa in the Ma'an Governorate of Jordan. Like Petra, it is a Nabataean site, with buildings carved into the walls of the sandstone canyons. As its name suggests, it is much smaller, consisting of three wider open areas connected by a 450-metre (1,480 ft) canyon. It is part of the Petra Archeological Park, though accessed separately, and included in Petra's inscription as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.It is often visited by tourists in conjunction with Petra itself, since it is free and usually less crowded.

Fifth Jordan Attraction: Petra / The Rose – Red City

T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) wrote: "...so you will never know what Petra is like, unless you come out here. Only be assured that till you have seen it you have not had the glimmering of an idea how beautiful a place can be."

Sixth Jordan Attraction:  Wadi Rum

Known as The Valley of the Moon is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km (37 mi) to the east of Aqaba; it is the largest wadi in Jordan. Wadi Rum is Arabic for Roman Valley,or "Valley of the Romoioi" (Ρωμοιοί), as the Greeks were also called in the early Byzantine era by Arab people, probably referring to Christian Byzantine monastic or ascetic communities in the area, for which they were also known as "monks of the desert", before the expansion of the Rashidun Caliphate.

Wadi Rum Night Camp : Fire Evening -  : And this what you won't find it offered or presented by any tourism company in Jordan , or on other places ,,, the Personal touch that we deal with all our guests can be noticed very clear on this part ,,, where we will move after dinner time out of the camp to an isolated part "beside the camp" , and where we will set our private camp on that spot , all required tools and equipment is prepared and you will notice that yourself if you had the chance to take that part of the trip (Ice box with cold water and cold drinks,

Expand your tour experience at Wadi Rum when taking our special offer trip (Petra – Wadi Rum Guided Tour with Mustafa ) to explore the universe during the night activity at the valley (This tour is available only Friday-Saturday  )

Seventh attraction : Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea.

The seaside town of Aqaba is located on the Red Sea, within sight of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Jordan may have only 26 kilometers of coastline, but they are being put to good use, and below the sparkling Red Sea waters are some of the most fantastic dive sites in the world. This area has been of strategic interest since old times, and evidence of these civilizations is still visible, although visitors may have to tear themselves away from the five star hotels and the beach in order to do so. Aqaba is also popular as a base camp for travelers wanting to see Wadi Rum and Petra. This is a quick stop however, visiting the public beach, taking a glass boat ride, having lunch and keep moving toward the Dead Sea passing through the Rift Valley highway.

Eighth attraction : The Museum at the Lowest Place on Earth

Built at the lowest elevation on earth, and less than a year old, this jewel-box of a museum showcases the Dead Sea region’s rich past.

No country has as many Biblical sites as Jordan.  The Dead Sea gets several mentions in the Bible, and it’s where the Dead Sea scrolls were found.  Jesus was baptized by John in Bethany-Beyond-the-Jordan, before the baptist lost his head in Machaerus.

In the hills east of Ghor as-Safi (ancient Zoar) a cave was found in 1991 with Early and Middle Bronze Age pottery inside. Speculation linked the finds with Abraham’s nephew Lot who, according to the Bible, moved to a cave in the hills above Zoar after the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

The Museum at the Lowest Place on Earth

Ninth Jordan Attraction : Dead Sea Salt Beach.

Located at the Southern part of the Dead Sea, not very well known location, despite the fact that you would see it very clear while driving on the Dead Sea road coming from Aqaba city and after you pass the dry area that separate the upper part from the lower part of the Dead Sea. Despite that you can see it, but it looks far away to reach for different reasons, you need to walk around 500 meters to reach it, and in simple words : it is amazing and stunning and it indeed does worth a stop ( it is not a well known visited place neither for Jordanians or tourists because  there is no services at all at that spot and it doesn’t looks easy to reach - but it is easy.

Tenth Jordan Attraction : Dead Sea Beach - Amman Beach.

Its 2km south of the main resort strip, is run by Amman municipality to give affordable access to the Dead Sea. The grounds are attractively landscaped and the beach is clean, with sun umbrellas, freshwater showers and a vibrant local flavour, making it a great place to strike up conversation with a Jordanian family.There are also a number of swimming pools, a restaurant (JD10 buffet), some drinks stalls, basketball courts and an amusement park next door.

Site Highlights

Petra (Pink City Of Petra)

 The city of Petra, capital of the Nabataean Arabs, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, it is Located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the red sea town of Aqaba, Petra the world wonder is undoubtedly Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction, and it is visited by tourists from all over the world.

 It is not known precisely when Petra was built, but the city began to prosper as the capital of the Nabataean Empire from the 1st century BC, which grew rich through trade in frankincense, myrrh, and spices.

Wadi Rum

 Wadi Rum also known as The Valley of the Moon is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km (37 mi) to the east of Aqaba; it is the largest wadi in Jordan. The name Rum most likely comes from an Aramaic root meaning 'high' or 'elevated'.To reflect its proper Arabic pronunciation, archaeologists transcribe it as Wadi Ramm .

The Dead Sea

 Located in the Jordan Valley, part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa to Turkey, the Dead Sea is the remains of a giant inland lake. Lake Lisan was 200 kilometers long and approximately 200 meters deeper than the current level of the Dead Sea. As it contracted, it left Lake Tiberias and the Dead Sea, which at 408 meters below sea level is the lowest point on earth.

 The salt content of the sea is 20%, eight times the level of the world's oceans. This concentration contributes to the amazing buoyancy of the water and is a legacy of years of evaporation. The only life forms left in the Dead Sea are eleven species of bacteria. The waters are rich in minerals, including calcium, magnesium, bromine, iodine, and bitumen. All these have healing properties that can alleviate or ease allergies, skin rashes, bronchial irritations or glandular conditions. Visitors come from all over the world to ease or cure their conditions at the medical treatment centers at the Dead Sea. Even those suffering only from ennui can enjoy the high-quality spas in the area. In addition, due the unique depth of its location, the climate and quality of sunshine in the Dead Sea area is beneficial. Dead Sea salts and mud are known worldwide for their healthful properties.

Jerash - Gerasa

  •  Jerash is one of the best-preserved Roman-era cities in the world. Located only 40 kilometers north of Amman, visitors today can trace the chariot ruts on the Cardo, admire the mosaics which were laid contemporaneously to those found in Madaba, and test the acoustics of the North and South Theatres. Inhabited since Neolithic times, Jerash came of age when Pompey swept through the region in 63 BC Jerash became one of the largest cities in the Decapolis federation.

  • Madaba City and Churches

     The fertility of Madaba's plains have made it a strategic location for 3500 years. Fought over by many peoples during different times, it later became a Nabataean town. During the Byzantine era, the city became a bishopric and the mosaics, for which it became famous, were laid. Today, the city is still famous for mosaics, both historical and for its mosaic school, the only one of its kind in the Middle East.

    Mount Nebo

     Mount Nebo is an elevated ridge in Jordan, approximately 710 metres (2,330 ft) above sea level, mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan. The West Bank city of Jericho is usually visible from the summit, as is Jerusalem on a very clear day.

  • The Baptism Site

     The third most holy site for Christians in the world, after the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Church of the Nativity, is the site of the baptism of Jesus Christ, known in Arabic as al-Maghtas. Excavations at Wadi Kharrar carried out after the 1994 peace treaty found evidence of a complex of churches, hermit cells and other buildings described in the writings of many pilgrims who have visited the site since the 2nd century AD. Now preserved as a tourist destination, al-Maghtas attracts tourists year-round.

  • Machaerus and Mukawer

  •  The archaeological site of Mach­aerus, found 2 km to the west of the vil­lage, is located on the east side of the Dead Sea and provides a spectacular view of it. It may be divided into two segments: the fortress ruins on the isolated spur of Qal 'at al-Mishnaqa , and the associated lower town built on the steep northern slope. According to Josephus (War 7), Alexander Jannaeus (reigned 103-76 BC), a Hasmonean ruler, built the for­tress consisting of upper and lower seg­ments. Gabinius, one of Pompey's gen­erals, destroyed it in 57 BC; Herod the Great (reigned 37-4 BC) rebuilt it. After Herod's death, his son Herod Antipas inherited the fortress. Upon the lat­ter's death in AD 39, it passed to Herod Agrippa I until his death in AD 44. After this time it came under the control of the Romans. Subsequently, during the First Jewish Revolt, Jewish rebels took control of it after AD 66. The Romans besieged the fortress in AD 72, the rebels were allowed to leave, and then the Romans tore it down, leaving only the foundations. In the 1800s, explorers visited and recorded the ruins at the site.

  • Ajloun Castle

     Ajloun Castle is one of the greatest examples of Islamic Ayyubid military architecture. The first stage of construction began ca.1184 by General Izzidin Usama, nephew of Salahuddin AL Ayyoubi, who built it on a hill 1100 meters above sea level.

Site Highlights

Petra  (Pink City Of Petra)

 The city of Petra, capital of the Nabataean Arabs, is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, it is Located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the red sea town of Aqaba, Petra the world wonder is undoubtedly Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction, and it is visited by tourists from all over the world.

 It is not known precisely when Petra was built, but the city began to prosper as the capital of the Nabataean Empire from the 1st century BC, which grew rich through trade in frankincense, myrrh, and spices.

Wadi Rum

 Wadi Rum also known as The Valley of the Moon is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km (37 mi) to the east of Aqaba; it is the largest wadi in Jordan. The name Rum most likely comes from an Aramaic root meaning 'high' or 'elevated'.To reflect its proper Arabic pronunciation, archaeologists transcribe it as Wadi Ramm .

The Dead Sea

 Located in the Jordan Valley, part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa to Turkey, the Dead Sea is the remains of a giant inland lake. Lake Lisan was 200 kilometers long and approximately 200 meters deeper than the current level of the Dead Sea. As it contracted, it left Lake Tiberias and the Dead Sea, which at 408 meters below sea level is the lowest point on earth.

 The salt content of the sea is 20%, eight times the level of the world's oceans. This concentration contributes to the amazing buoyancy of the water and is a legacy of years of evaporation. The only life forms left in the Dead Sea are eleven species of bacteria. The waters are rich in minerals, including calcium, magnesium, bromine, iodine, and bitumen. All these have healing properties that can alleviate or ease allergies, skin rashes, bronchial irritations or glandular conditions. Visitors come from all over the world to ease or cure their conditions at the medical treatment centers at the Dead Sea. Even those suffering only from ennui can enjoy the high-quality spas in the area. In addition, due the unique depth of its location, the climate and quality of sunshine in the Dead Sea area is beneficial. Dead Sea salts and mud are known worldwide for their healthful properties.

 

Petra QandA

Is it necessary to get a tour guide along Petra or the offered 2 hours will be enough ?

Kindly note that 2 hours tour guide, will cover all area -from visitor center -basin area  (Restaurant area) starts with the Siq , the Treasury, Street of  facade, Theater ,Royal Tombs ,Great Temple Complex  and princess palace,, later on you can walk all the way to Monastery by yourself if you want .

Can I explore Petra myself after the 2 hours or should I pay extra for tour guide ?

In Petra you just need to follow the path, and they have explanation signs on each place you reach, you will be given a sitemap with the ticket at Petra visitor center, and each spot on Petra has explaining signs with 3 major languages. A local site tour guide along Petra (for site detailed information) can be requested if desired. Local tour guides can be requested and arranged in Petra Visitor center if not included at your itinerary, and it will cost 50 JD (around 70$) for basic trail coverage - around 2-3 hours.  First suggested trail to visit Petra: from visitor center -Basin area  (Restaurant area) starts with the Siq , the Treasury, Street of  facade, Theater, Royal Tombs, Great Temple Complex  and princess palace, can be taken in first day - 4 hrs and it will cost you 50 JD, later on you can walk all the way to Monastery in the same day- 2 hrs and it can be self-guided (with guide will cost you another 50 JD). Way 2 in the second day- from visitor center to High Area of Sacrifice and Back Area (Wadi Farasa) and the guide will cost you 50 JD (Guide is Highly Recommended) , you may continue to Mount Around on that day (Guide is recommended and will cost you 50 JD) During my hundreds of visits to Petra, I was able to cover the main trail, the Monastery and the back trail - Wadi Farasa and high area of Sacrifice few times, this involves walking around 16km, and climbing over 2000 steps, equivalent to going 213 floors according to my iphone health application.

Would we arrange for a local guide at Petra when we get there, or can that be pre-arranged. Or do we not need ?

Kindly note that our driver will drop you at the visitors center and wait for you, if you need a tour guide at the site you can hire one from the visitors center (no booked in advance)  this would cost you another 71 US$ for two hours or 145  US$ for four hours or 215 US$ for full coverage,, But note that you just need to follow the path, and they have explanation signs on each place you will reach - (you will be given a site map with the ticket on the visitors center- it is really helpful) , and each spot on Petra has an explanation sign.

Are there specific days to do Petra at night - Petra by Night? How much does it cost ?

Petra by night is every Monday, Wednesday & Thursday, starting at 20:00 You can buy the ticket there for 17JD/P. Petra by night activity is arranged by a private company so you can do the visit as long as you purchased this activity ticket , and you don’t need to have Petra ticket at all ( Saying this, you just need Petra one day ticket for the main Petra tour same day or next day ).

What kind of animals we might use at Petra, and how often we need to use any ?

Petra is a huge site, and you will get the chance to ride on different stages at Petra according to your desire and ability to walk: you may ​take the free horse ride from Petra visitors center to the beginning of the Siq ( about 600 meters - 5 $ tip is expected to the horse man ) you may take a carriage from Petra visitors center till the Treasury ( 3 km - cost 25 ​ JD for 2 ​ including the way back at the end of the day ) , You may take a horse or camel ride from the treasury to the first step to the Monastery ( 3 km - around 15 JD / P ) You may take donkeys on going up to the Monastery ( 800 steps - around 10 JD/P) You may take any, according to the same order during your way back to the visitor's center.
