It is easier to start at the top and walk down. There is water and you will get wet, but the scenery is beautiful

Fantastic varied walk. We did it in April and there was some wading involved - maximum waist deep, though most of the gorge was dry. There were a couple of tricky bits which involved clambering down steep rocks, but only for a few metres and the sandstone is grippy enough for it to be within any fit walkers capability.The colours...

We did this while we were staying at Feynan Ecolodge, nice but not very easy hiking with dry and wet area. Amazing landscape with different animals

We hiked from Al Nawatef camp to Petra. The first day is through Wadi Ghuweir, which is a beautiful canyon. An adventurous but beautiful hike. Together with our guide we had the place to ourselves. Definitely one of the highlights of our Jordan trip!

pure nature (flowers, herbs, plants, birds....), great trails, good shoes required and take an official guide (entry 8 JD/person + guide fee, a little expensive but it's worth)

Our favourite hike during our stay at Feynan Ecolodge. Ali, our guide from the lodge, was very informative.
