Trek the `Inca Trail` of the Middle East - This is THE Jordan walking holiday following the Jordan Trail
This excellent trekking holiday in Jordan takes us from the Dana Reserve, southwards to the ancient 'Rose-Red City' of Petra. This trek has rapidly gained a reputation as one of the finest in the Middle East. Six days of trekking takes us through the most rugged country in Jordan, straddling the edge of the great Rift Valley. Starting out from Wadi Feinan in the Dana Nature Reserve, the trek takes us on hunters' trails through deep gorges and across high ridges, climbing gradually from around 300 metres at Feinan to around 1100 metres at the high viewpoint above Petra. Nights will be spent camping Bedouin-style with the local guide and crew. Crossing a final escarpment, we reach the spectacular ‘Monastery', which heralds our arrival at Petra - one of the world's ‘New7Wonders'. The route from Dana to Petra is now part of the ‘Jordan Trail’ which spans the length of this interesting and diverse country. The ‘Jordan Trail’ is an upcoming brand new way-marked trek and the Dana to Petra section is probably the most beautiful and best. This great adventure follows in the footsteps of many explorers and is a magical week of discovery, walking and above all, Jordanian hospitality.
