After breakfast drive to Wadi Mujib to hike the adventurous exciting Malaqi water trail. This hike is difficult but a lot of fun and takes around 6-8 hours. You will be hiking with a private English-speaking RSCN guide. It starts at the visitor centre and leads quickly to a striking area of creamy white hills made of soft rock deposits. After passing through these hills, you begin your descent to the river Mujib; crystal clear, fast flowing and teeming with life. Small fish are plentiful, as well as frogs. Bright kingfishers are often seen speeding along the river channel, as well as circling birds of prey. Dense vegetation lines the river sides, making a stark contrast to the arid, naked mountains that surround you. The hike continues upstream along the river to its confluence with the Hidan River (Malaqi Area). Here you can linger, eat a picnic and just enjoy this wild paradise. You can also enjoy swimming in the natural pools. You then move on through the Mujib gorge to descend a waterfall, 20 meters in height, using ropes. From here you continue along the rest of the river, back to the visitor center. If you have a fear of heights or any worries about descending on ropes, please avoid this hike there are other hikes available that would then suit you better.
