Rift Valley Mountain Trek
What is RVMT?
The Rift Valley Mountain Trek is the first long-distance discovery hiking route in Jordan, linking Dana Biosphere Reserve and Feynan lodge with Petra trough the Shobak heights. Extending approximately 100km from Dana old village to little Petra, the altitude varies from one section to another, starting from 1,300m to 320m above sea level and reaching again to 1665 m above sea level at the half way point. While crossing mountains and plateaus, visitors can explore the magnificent landscape with its breath-taking geological forms and enjoying the awe-inspiring Rift Valley viewpoints. Interacting with the local population during this spectacular crossing, visitors have the phenomenal experience of camping in real goat hair Bedouin tents.
