Jordan - Jerash, Irbid & the Jordan Valley (Chapter)
This is the Jerash, Irbid & the Jordan Valley chapter from Lonely Planet’s Jordan guidebook.
The far north of Jordan is frequently eschewed by visitors, in favour of Petra’s grandeur and the splashy attractions of the Dead and Red Seas. However, this is a region rich in ancient ruins and biblical associations, all set in rolling countryside that’s ablaze with wildflowers in spring-time.
