DISCOVER JORDAN             #Family in Jordan

Hiking around the Dead Sea. Wadi Assal: waterfalls, sandstone and serenity.

In our series “wadis around the Dead Sea”, we recently discovered wadi Assal. 120 kms from Amman and 2 hours drive, this beautiful wadi is really worth being visited. It is varied (siq, waterfall, beautiful rocks …) and its respectable length (5-6 kms) justify a day – hike, complete with a picnic and water games for the kids.

The King Talal dam hike is an ideal package : you can wake up late, take your car for a short drive (45 minutes from Amman), have lunch on the lake banks, and get back to Amman before 3p.m.

Hiking memo : Petra by the secret back way…

This hike offers the major advantage of bypassing the tourist crowd of Petra to join the famous “Monastery” (ad-deir in arabic), and also to avoid the hard 800ish steps to climb up to ad-deir from the valley of Petra…even if you’ll still have to climb a little bit with this proposed route.
