More About Jordan

As the site of the first experiment of humans establishing a permanent settlement (around 7,000 B.C.E. in Jericho) Jordan can claim the roots of all we recognize today as civilization.  Civilizations and cultures have since streamed in and through this country, settling in the fertile Jordan Valley and roaming the remote desert.  Jordan’s history, its culture, its people and its proximity make it an enticing addition to an Egyptian Adventure.

You can fly from Cairo to Amman in about 1 hour, Jordan’s bustling, clean and modern capital, via land from Egypt, through Eilat in Israel. or arrive by ferry from Nuweiba crossing the Gulf of Aqaba, (although this route is somewhat unreliable).  From either point access to Jordan’s primary tourist attraction is a matter of a few hours’ travel and worth every second of it.

Petra_MonasteryPetra is a rarity, a place where the hands of Nature and of man have seamlessly collaborated to produce a radiant rose-colored marvel.  Carved into and out of the red coral sandstone, Petra presents a powerful combination of ancient Nabataean monuments and awesome natural scenery.  Sculpted from the rock 2,000 years ago, the Nabataeans created a peaceful crossroads of nascent international trade between the Eastern and Western cultures of the time.

While a week would be needed to visit all the highlights of the almost 40 square mile Petra basin, 2 full days allows enough time for the central monuments:  the dramatic “Treasury,” tombs, temples, theaters and waterworks.  Entry through the ¾ mile long mountain fissure “siq” at dusk either on foot or horseback makes a travel memory for a lifetime. So we suggest a minimum or 2 and preferably 3 nights in Petra.
