Jordan is an endless paradise for hikers. This three-day trek brings us to three of the Jordanian canyons, where you have flowing water all year round, and a most beautiful natural decoration. Hiking those canyons pinch your heart, as you can only try inserting that beauty in a photo, but it doesn’t reflect the complete fascination of the landscape. The only way to deal with it is keep returning to those places over and over again…
Our trip will start in Wadi Mukhairis, a limestone canyon flowing to the Dead Sea beach, near the hotel resort. We will walk upstream and visit the two “hidden waterfalls”. Coming back down we will walk on the northern cliffs and opposite the beautiful view of the Dead Sea and the Judean Desert beyond.
Driving south along the Dead Sea shore we will arrive to Wadi Karak and camp atop its cliffs on the south of the canyon. A very early start and we will descend steeply into the canyon. Right away we will reach the first waterfall – the graded 40 meter fall, which is devided into three sections. We will abseil the first two together, then separately we will abseil the third 20 meters fall. The waterfall is a gateway into paradise, consists of plenty of water and hanging gardens, with not a dull moment.
On the third day we will hike in the ultimate canyon of Jordan: the Mujib (Arnon), We will ascend to the pools of the Hidan canyon, and then descend the Mujib including abseiling in its 18 meter waterfall. A beautiful cherry to to top the whipped cream!
