Wadi Mujib Nature Reserve


6 reviews of Wadi Mujib Nature Reserve

Mujib Nature Reserve at the lowest altitude in the world

The Mujib Nature Reserve is at some of the lowest altitudes in the world with an amazing setting by the east coast of the Dead Sea. It is within the deep Wadi Mujib gorge, which enters the Dead Sea at 410 meters below sea level. The Reserve reaches to the Karak and Madaba mountains, reaching an altitude of 900 m above sea level. This variation in elevation of 1300 meters, combined with the constant presence of water flow from 7 tributaries throughout the year in the valley, provides Wadi Mujib with an incredible biodiversity that is still being researched. There have been more than 300 kinds of plants, 10 species of carnivores and many species of permanent and migratory birds discovered here.

Wadi Mujib

In Jordan there is a lot of desert and a lot of rocks, and very little water. Therefore, there is a very scarce amount of flowing rivers that generate natural reserves there. Among Karak Madaba and Wadi Mujib is a natural area that is very much worth a stop to take some photos there. They have also built a dam and store that were much needed there. Funny how the Bedouin riding their stalls on the lookout to take some Styes selling handicrafts, carpets or whatever.
