With this detailed guide, you save valuable time when you plan your hiking adventure in Jordan. Over a period of three years, the authors have described in detail over 400 km (248 miles) of astonishing hiking trails and walks in amazing landscapes. Most trails can be completed in 4-6 hours as day trips from Amman, Wadi Rum village or Aqaba and are in and around Jordan’s main tourist attractions including Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba and the Dead Sea area.
Trails include the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and the Lawrence of Arabia Spring trails with magnificent views in Wadi Rum and the High Place of Sacrifice Trail with more monuments than most tourists see in Petra. Other highlights include the Wadi Ghuweir to Feynan Trail with its remarkable oasis and narrow canyon and the Wadi Mujib Malaqi Trail that has a waterfall near the lowest point on earth at the Dead Sea.
The book provides easy to understand custom-made hiking maps, trail descriptions and travel directions. Users of the book also have access to a unique collection of 80+ tutorials, trail animations and hiking videos in HD format and interactive maps. Although most trails can be completed without a GPS device, owners of the book can download 58 carefully recorded E-trails to maximize their time on the trail using GPS enabled smart phones and tablets.
Users of the book also have access to the Day Trip Finder and the Itinerary Planner. These interactive planning tools provide hikers easy access to trail descriptions based on a large number of search criteria including hot springs, waterfalls, sand dunes, palm trees, historic sites, and other interesting places on the trail.
The guidebook has been written with the independent traveler in mind, but is also a valuable source of hiking ideas if you plan to organize your holiday with a travel company.
