After Mount Nebo, our driver Walid told us our next stop was the Grand Canyon of Jordan!
After driving along Highway 35 (or more famously known as the King’s Highway) for about an hour, we stopped at a roadside lookout. This lookout is within the small village district of Dhiban.
This is what we saw!
In the distance, looking south from where we stood is the beginning of Wadi Mujib – Mujib Damn and water reserve.

The pictures don’t really reflect the natural beauty and colors of the wadi.
I’m not sure of our exact elevation at this lookout, but the highest level of Wadi Mujib is 1300 meters.
Then turning around, this would be looking northwest up into Wadi Mujib.Close up of the canyon rock ledges.Close up of the wadi below.
There were a couple of bedouins selling souvenirs at the lookout spot!
I bought a small item from this man!
But not the Montreal you’re thinking of! 😉
