Dana Nature Reserve

 
Dana Nature Reserve Established in 1989, Dana Biosphere Reserve is Jordan’s largest nature reserve, covering some 320 km2 of rugged and beautiful landscape along the face of the Great Rift Valley. It sweeps down in a series of mountain ridges, from the 1500m high plateau near Quadesiyya to the desert plains of Wadi Araba. The total number of species recorded so far consists of 697 plants, of which 3 are new to science, and 282 animals. The mountains are cut by many steep-sided wadis, often lined with a lush growth of trees and shrubs. Its geology is as varied as its landscape, switching from limestone to sandstone to granite. Dana Biosphere Reserve is the only reserve in Jordan that includes the four different bio-geographical zones o...
 

The Dead Sea

 
The Dead Sea The lowest point on the earth’s surface, the Dead Sea is a fascinating natural phenomena and one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the whole world. The Dead Sea is flanked by mountains to the east and the rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west, giving it an almost other-worldly beauty. Straddling the border between Israel and Jordan, the mineral content of this 75-km-long and 10-km-wide saltwater lake tops out at 33%, or about six times as salty as a normal ocean. This incredibly high salt content means the Dead Sea is extremely buoyant, making it impossible to sink or swim in - the only option is to bob around like a cork! It’s called the Dead Sea as nothing can live in it. There are no...

Petra

 
Petra The most famous attraction in Jordan is the Nabataean city of Petra. More than 2000 years ago Petra was used as a temporary refuge by nomadic Nabataeans who came north out of Arabia. From a few caves in a rocky outcrop, easy to defend, the Nabataeans created Petra as a fortress capital city. To reach the city the visitor travels on foot, or horseback, through the awesome Siq; a winding, one-kilometer long fissure between overhanging cliffs. At the end of the Siq in the towering brightness appears Petra's most impressive monument: The Treasury (El-Khazneh). This massive Royal Tomb was carved out of the solid rock from the side of mountain. Beyond El-Khazneh are hundreds of carved and built structures, soaring templ...
 

Wadi Rum

 
Wadi Rum Feel the romance of the Arabian Desert in the springtime or anytime, at Wadi Rum in Jordan. Let the fabled T.E. Lawrence come alive, whether through memories stirred from the screen version or from the pages of history and the actual exploits of the legendary British officer.

Much of David Lean's Lawrence of Arabia was filmed here and it was also the location where T.E. Lawrence himself was based during the Arab revolt. Today Wadi Rum challenges climbers to scale its sheet granite and sandstone cliffs, to hike along mountain trails and valleys, to trek deep into the enchantin...
