Dana

One of Jordan's hidden gems, the charming 15th-century stone village of Dana dangles beneath the King’s Highway on a precipice, commanding exceptional views of the valley below. That valley and the surrounding area make up the Dana Biosphere Reserve. It's a wonderful place to escape Jordan's cities and spend a few days hiking, enjoy some village atmosphere and look for wildlife.
