Day 1 – Afana to Rasoun – 5 Km, 3 hours
One of the best walks in the north of Jordan! The walk starts at Khirbet Afana with its huge Roman underground cisterns and numerous cave dwellings and tombs. We continue gently downhill through the trees and tended fields with rock walls & nice views to the iron-age dolmens overlooking the village of Rasoun. In the village there is an opportunity to visit the local projects of the Royal Society for Conservation of Nature (RSCN): the Soap House & the Calligraphy House.
Day 2 – Wadi Zubia Hike – 13 Km, 5 hours
We start at the Qabla ruins where we can see remains of houses, caves and quarries. We head west down the forested Wadi Zubia passing a cave spring and more ruins at Us Us.
Day 3 – Wadi Saleh to Pella – 8 Km, 3 hours
Starting just north of Kufr Abil, this is a lovely walk down a wadi, initially forested, then pastoral, then climbing to the summit of Khirbet Sartaba with its Greek ruins and great views before descending to Pella.
