Wadi al-Mujib, Jordan

4.7
#6 of 22 in Parks in Jordan
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.

    I've done single travel and thank goodness I did if the boy from the entrance and grabbed a guide! Not alone not had been able to reach the end. The entry are 21 JD and 35 with guide. The tour is 2 hours and at the beginning it is easy (River walk) but how after 15 minutes, the Gorge narrows and starts good! Water becomes as knee but go very fast and repeatedly get to dip you whole. There are ropes and ladders steps but still I recommend go with Guide because it explains what is the easiest step. Going alone seemed essential. The entire route is like an Indiana Jones movie, very similar to the Siq before the entrance to Petra but with water. In a morning is longer by what can be combined with excursion to the Dead Sea, Madaba Mt. Nebo for example. This route is open from April 1 to the end of November.
