Jordan travel guide

Jordan - Azraq & the Eastern Desert Highway (Chapter)

9th Edition Jul 2015

This is the Azraq & the Eastern Desert Highway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guidebook.

Imagine a space so desolate that not even a boulder or a bush troubles the 360-degree horizon. Now add a carpet of ancient black volcanic rock, unnavigable even by camels. And finally, factor in a ravaging heat so overpowering in the summer that the ground pulses before your eyes and mirages appear in the distance. Welcome to the Eastern Desert!

  • admire the risqué frescoes in the bathhouse of Qusayr Amra, a Unesco World Heritage site
  • maps
  • wander the maze-like corridors of Qasr Kharana, a mighty fortress in a lonesome desert
  • transport
  • clamber through the basalt ruins of Umm al-Jimal, an ancient town of shimmering black stone
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Azraq & around, Zarqa, Hallabat, Qasr al-Azraq, Azraq Oasis, Shaumari Wildlife Reserve, Qasr ‘Uweinid, Qusayr Amra, Qasr Kharana, Qasr al-Mushatta, Eastern Desert Highway, Mafraq, Umm al-Jimal, Qasr Deir al-Kahf, Safawi, Qasr Aseikhin and Qasr Burqu.
