Lace Up for Some Fresh Air
Wade and trek through the deep sandstone gorge of the Wadi Mujib, Jordan’s most spectacular river canyon. This is an adventurous hike that takes you up through the beautiful sandstone ravine of the Wadi Mujib to one of the canyon’s highest waterfalls. The trail starts at the Adventures Center near the Mujib Bridge, where you will take the cantilevered walkway over the dam to 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 summer.

The narrow file, just over 1,100 feet long, is crammed with tombs, temples, triclinia, houses, water channels and cisterns. The surrounding area is picturesque and great for exploration.
