Wadi Mujib Ibex Trail
Mujib Biosphere, Jordan
The Ibex Trail is a guided trail within Wadi Mujib, running parallel to the Dead Sea and hiking through a number of dry wadis before ascending into the nature reserve. The trail lasts approximately four hours.
The trail begins at the Visitor Centre and follows the Dead Sea Highway before ascending into the Reserve. Diverging to the south, the trail runs parallel to the Dead Sea, which provides a startlingly blue backdrop for the entire hike.
The hike then continues along a number of dry wadis to the Raddas Ranger Station, where you may see Nubian Ibex. It is also where the famous rock “statue” of Lot’s wife can be seen. Legend has it that while fleeing the villages of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt as she ignored the warning not to look back.
After resting at the Station, the trail continues along a road for about one hour until reaching the Reserve entrance near the Visitor Centre.
