Wadi al-Mujib, Jordan

4.7
#6 of 22 in Parks in Jordan
Scenic Drive Wildlife Area
Cool off on a fun water hike through Wadi al-Mujib, a diverse nature reserve surrounding the eponymous river that flows into the Dead Sea. The relaxing river hike--which you can take without a guide--is popular in the summer as a way to escape the scorching heat. However, other trails in the reserve do require a guide. You’ll receive a life jacket from the park authorities, and, depending on the water levels, crossing the canyon from the Dead Sea to the waterfall might require swimming and climbing a variety of obstacles. The park prohibitis minors from hiking the canyon trail. Wadi al-Mujib is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Karak Edition.

  • I was at the Wadi Mujib with friends after spending the previous day and night at the dead sea (which by the way). You can choose between different paths for length and difficulty, all forbidden to minors. The more "simple" is the wadi siq trail which costs 21 JD for non Jordanians (18 for students) and lasts for at least two hours. We enjoyed ourselves so we were almost three hours. This path is unguided, although in the most difficult points are there any guides ready to assist you and are very important. At the entrance you can buy shoes from rock for 5 JD, but even simple sneakers are fine as long as they are not slippery. The water is a perfect temperature, just to cool off but without making you get cold. The return you can let go with the flow (when the water is not too low, although beatings and abrasions are insured anyway), and it's beautiful to let lead looking at the canyon bottom, wonderful! I have riden the Jordan and Wadi Mujib absolutely deserves to be seen and experienced, gorgeous!

  • Nice little adventure where you hike upstream a river and climb up few waterfalls. Make sure you have waterproof footwear and no flip flops! You need something with a good grip!  more »
