18 – Wadi Mujib Malaqi Trail

The Wadi Mujib Malaqi Trail offers an unparalleled adventure within the renowned Wadi al-Mujib valley, situated in the heart of the Mujib Nature Reserve near the Dead Sea.

This trail is not for the faint-hearted or those seeking a casual hike; it requires a guided tour, emphasizing the trail's challenging nature and the reserve's commitment to safety and conservation. 

The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature (RSCN) manages the trail with strict regulations to ensure the preservation of the natural environment and the well-being of its visitors.

This includes the necessity for climbing equipment to navigate a daunting 30-meter (approximately 100 feet) waterfall, an exhilarating feature of the trail that provides both a physical and mental challenge to participants. The equipment needed for the adventure is provided by the RSCN,

The setting of this adventure, the Mujib Biosphere Reserve, holds the distinction of being the lowest nature reserve on Earth, a unique characteristic that adds to the trail's allure.

UNESCO's formal recognition of the Mujib Nature Reserve as a Biosphere Reserve in 2011 highlights its exceptional natural features.

The trail offers a rare blend of physical challenge, natural beauty, and educational opportunity, making it a must-visit for those seeking to connect with the wild and untamed aspects of Jordan's diverse landscapes.

Exploring the Wadi Mujib Malaqi Trail is an immersive journey into one of the world's most extraordinary natural landscapes.
