Jordan - Dead Sea Highway (Chapter)
This is the Dead Sea Highway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guide-book.
Sometimes you’ve got to get down low to find the real highlights. The Dead Sea is the example par excellence – to be found quite literally at the lowest point on earth. Taking a dip takes on a new meaning here, as the intensely salty water keeps you so buoyant you’ll be bobbing about like a cork rather than gracefully swimming a few strokes.
- wallow in hot springs at Hammamat Ma’in, one of the region’s thermal oases
- drive from high ground to low ground towards the Dead Sea Highway for the best views in Jordan
- splash through the canyon pools of Mujib Biosphere Reserve, keeping an eye open for ibex
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Dead Sea, Herodus (Zara) Spring, Dead Sea Pano-ramic Complex, Hammamat Ma’in, Mujib Biosphere Reserve, Lisan Peninsula, Lot’s Cave and Wadi Araba.
