Jordan

Walks Treks Caves Climbs and Canyons

This guidebook to Jordan describes a variety of walks, treks, caves, climbs and canyons in this wonderful landscape, based around Pella, Ajloun, the Dead Sea Hills, Dana, Petra and Wadi Rum. Covers Jordan's newly created nature reserves.

Jordan is a land of unexpected beauty and great variety. From its flower-carpeted meadows in the north to spectacular canyons with fast-flowing rivers, and from ancient cities to towering mountains, caves and vast deserts, Jordan has something for everyone.
This guide describes a variety of walks, treks, caves, climbs and canyons in this wonderful landscape, based around Pella, Ajloun, the Dead Sea Hills, Dana, Petra and Wadi Rum. Many of the routes were unknown prior to the first edition of the guide, and this second edition provides information on new climbing areas and other unexplored regions for those who wish to make their own discoveries.

This guide offers you an opportunity to see and experience a country of great antiquity and remarkable beauty, yet the authors also make a plea for visitors to respect the land and its people, both still largely unspoilt by tourism.

Seasons
Too hot June–August. Spring (late March to end May)/autumn (late September to mid-November) is good for walks. There can be flash floods in canyons winter/spring up to April, so summer to early autumn is best for canyoning. Northern hills have snow in winter.
Centres
Pella, Ajloun, Amman, Madaba, Karak, Dana, Wadi Musa, Wadi Rum village, Aqaba
Difficulty
Routes to suit all abilities. Any requiring special skills or equipment are identified as such. Some routes in remote areas. Route-finding ability often required... good maps are difficult to obtain.
Must See
Flower-carpeted 'alpine meadows' of the north; spectacular Dead Sea canyons; multi-day Dana–Petra treks; ancient city of Petra; caving and climbing in Jordan's exotic limestone regions; Wadi Rum's world famous Bedouin hunting routes and Jordan's highest mountain; a night in a real Bedouin camp.
