If you're looking to explore Jordan by foot, this is definitely for you!

Jordan's Tourism Ministry has finally approved The Jordan Trail, a 640 km hiking path connecting Um Qais in the north to the Red Sea in the south.

The trail will allow explorers to cross the entire country of Jordan in just over a month!


Starting from Umm Qais and leading all the way to Aqaba, the trail will most definitely allow local and international hikers to explore Jordan's various ecosystems and cities.

You can even choose individual routes if you want to start off easy...

Um Qais to Ajloun

Ajloun to Fuheis

Fuheis to Wadi Zarqa

Three Wadis to Karak

Kerak to Dana

Dana to Petra

Petra to Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum to Aqaba

A day by day breakdown for these route can be found the Jordan Trail's website . The website is a work in progress however, and it advises people not to follow the trail solely based off the walking notes and maps, as they are not sufficient to navigate the trail just yet.
