Wadi Ziqlab

Last week, my brother suggested we drive out of the town. To my amazement we went to a place that I had never seen before and it was a magnificent place. We went to a place called Wadi (Valley) Ziqlab. The mountains were all green and the view was exotic.

According to The Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature there are 100 type of plants that grow only in Jordan. If you want to see one of the most beautiful places in the Middle East you have to visit Northern Jordan in Spring. And the treat is not just for the eye but for the entire body since the weather in spring is beautiful as well.

After driving for about thirty minutes we arrived a village called Dair Abos’eed. Dair is an Arabic word for monastery and Abos’eed is the name of the priest. We then drove down a very steep hill until there was no more road. We parked the car and trekked the mountains.

We were not prepared for this. We both were wearing our jeans and sport shoes. While trekking we heard a loud water noise. So, we decided to go down. It was very dangerous but it was worth it to see the water fall.

  1. I have only one “encounter” with wadi ziqlab; over 15 years ago.
    It is a beautiful spot for sure and obviously spring is here, spring is here 🙂


  2. Those are beautiful landscape shots. Everything looks so green and inviting. The best places are the ones you see for the first time because you always remember them, no matter how many times you go back.
