Leave your Dead Sea hotel by private, air-conditioned vehicle, and travel to Wadi Mujib.

One of Jordan’s most popular natural attractions, this steep river gorge threads east from the Dead Sea, within the Mujib Biosphere Reserve. The world’s lowest nature reserve for being set 410 meters below sea level, this protected area is a haven for animals such as mountain goats, rare cats, and migratory birds.

The Siq trail is graded as an easy-to-moderate, roughly 1.25-mile (2 kilometer) route through the canyon, suitable for a self-guided trek. To do it, you need to be 18 or over, be able to swim, and be reasonably fit.

On arrival, leave your driver at the visitor center at Mujib Bridge, and either follow the trail independently, or hire a local guide (additional cost) to accompany you.

Admire the canyon, with its sandstone cliffs towering above the river bed, and take the cantilevered walkway over the dam. Then, follow the river as it weaves between the rock walls, absorbing the tranquility and timeless scenery.

Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, you may need to walk through the river shallows and pools — some at waist-height — as you head upstream; all welcome chances to cool off. There are also two or three places where you’ll need to climb up rocks using metal ladders or ropes, or scramble over boulders.

After about an hour, arrive at the waterfall at the canyon end. Admire the 59-foot (18-meter) cascades, take a rest, and if you wish, swim in the natural rock pool.

Then, make your return, basking in the shade and scenery on the same route back. After your 2- to 3-hour hike, reconvene with your driver and finish with a drop-off back at your Dead Sea hotel.
