Wadi al-Mujib, Amman Governorate

#5 of 28 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.

  • Beautiful experience. Fun. Clean water. Strong enough current in some tight spots. There are anchors for the less experienced. Mandatory the life jacket they provide. Water never higher than 170 cm. Very recommended.

  • The route would be fun if the water were not putrid stagnant and full of floating waste. Inadequate protections. The cost of 21 Jd is exaggerated for a route of about 1H and 30 of this kind. plus the inconvenience that you can only pay in cash. Not recommended compared to other much nicer and safer routes in Italy.

  • We see canyons similar to those in the entrance to Petra but full with water. Wadi Mujib is alsa special for adventure lovers because it offers different experiments from several routes. While passing pathways between the canyons, you meet waterfalls, creeks and rocks. Sometimes you enter into water which covers almost half of your body, sometimes you are passing or climbing somewhere using ropes
  • THIS IS THE WRONG LOCATION if you are looking for the water hiking trail then search "wadi mujib adventure center". We were mislead because of the photos posted on this location. It took us another 1 hour and 40 minutes to get back to the correct location. الموقع غلط ، لو بدكم الممشى، اكتبو "wadi mujib adventure center"
