Tour description provided by Viator

Travel from Dead Sea for a great water adventure. Wadi Mujib Siq trail starts at the visitor center near the Mujib Bridge, where you will take the cantilevered walkway over the dam and follow the course of the river between towering sandstone cliffs to the base of a large waterfall. Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, the gorge may contain pools deep enough for swimming. This is an ideal walk to take slowly and enjoy the cool water and shade, especially in the heat of the summer.
Wadi Mujib is a gorge in Jordan in front of the Dead Sea at 400 meters below sea level. The Mujib Reserve is the lowest natural reserve in the world, located in the mountainous landscape to the east of the Dead Sea, approximately 90 kilometers south-west of Amman. The 220 square kilometers reserve was created in 1987 by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature and is regionally and internationally important, particularly for the bird life that the reserve supports. It extends to the Karak and Madaba mountains to the north and south, reaching 900 meters above sea level in some places. This 1,300 meter variation in elevation, combined with the valley's year round water flow from seven tributaries, means that Wadi Mujib enjoys a magnificent biodiversity that is enjoyable to explore through a self-guided walking tour. The Mujib Siq Trail is graded as easy to moderate depending on the season self guided. Clients must be at least 18 years old, know how to swim with a reasonable level of fitness.
