Dhiban, Jordan – Wadi Mujib – Jordan’s Grand Canyon

After Mount Nebo, our driver Walid told us our next stop was the Grand Canyon of Jordan!

After driving along Highway 35 (or more famously known as the King’s Highway) for about an hour, we stopped at a roadside lookout. This lookout is within the small village district of Dhiban.

This is what we saw!

In the distance, looking south from where we stood is the beginning of Wadi Mujib – Mujib Damn and water reserve. fullsizeoutput_a339

The pictures don’t really reflect the natural beauty and colors of the wadi.

I’m not sure of our exact elevation at this lookout, but the highest level of Wadi Mujib is 1300 meters.

Then turning around, this would be looking northwest up into Wadi Mujib.fullsizeoutput_a33ffullsizeoutput_a33eClose up of the canyon rock ledges.fullsizeoutput_a341Close up of the wadi below.fullsizeoutput_a340fullsizeoutput_a343fullsizeoutput_a344fullsizeoutput_a345
