Wadi Mujib is a spellbinding canyon that towers above the Mujib River and stretches along 70 kilometres. The Mujib River in Jordan flows into the Dead Sea which is the lowest place on earth. There are many excursions that allow visitors the chance to trek through the water, beneath the towering canyons, and into the Dead Sea itself.
Sections of Wadi Mujib also cover the Mujib Biosphere Reserve which is home to a number of rare wildlife species.
At 410 meters below sea level, the Mujib Biosphere Reserve is the lowest nature reserve on Earth. Its rugged and spectacular mountains border the Dead Sea coast and are dissected by several river-filled canyons that offer the best river and adventure hikes in Jordan.
The breath-taking scenery and the challenge of negotiating Mujib’s fast-flowing rivers make the Reserve one of Jordan’s most popular natural attractions.
Mujib’s complex river system and all-year water flow enable it to support a rich biodiversity. To date, over 300 species of plants, 10 species of carnivores and numerous species of resident and migratory birds have been recorded.
Some of the mountain and valley areas are difficult to reach and offer safe havens for rare species of cats, mountain goats (Ibex) and other mountain animals.
A trip to Wadi Mujib is a canyoning adventure like no other and it is arguably one of the best ways to enjoy Jordan’s Dead Sea. Those looking for a unique pit stop along The King’s Highway can take a break at the gorge to admire the stunning vistas below.
