We were very upset and disappointed. We had reservation to wadi mujib canyoning. We had to wait about two hours and in the end we were not allowed to enter, because our daughter were under 18 year. At registration we were not noticed and she will be 18 in a month and was accompiend by both parents. We told this argues to the staff but we were refused to enter. I think this rule should be changed or noticed the visitors at registration or at arriving

This was absolutely fantastic. Beautiful, and a complimentary experience to the Narrows if you have done that.

I was able to do it without swimming, which is great, because I can only swim on my back and not even that well. I suppose the water levels were lower -- they mostly came up to waist, sometimes to chest. Maybe it was deeper at times but I had a life jacket and held onto the rope so it really didn't matter.

I wore a surfer arm length bathing suit shirt and bathing suit swim pants. Even that didn't stop me from getting a cut, so I'm glad I had on more than just regular shorts.

I wear contacts so I just wore swim goggles when there was a chance my eyes would get wet and that was perfectly fine.

I am of average fitness and all was okay! Perhaps early May is the time to go if you are nervous.

After visiting Um er-Rasas, my driver suggested a slight detour to view Wadi Mujib from a lookout point near Dhiban. The views are gorgeous - steep rocky sandstone mountains cascading 1300 ft (400 m) to the narrow gorge below, with Al Mujib Dam in the distance. In 2011, UNESCO declared Mujib a Biosphere Reserve, making it the lowest nature reserve on earth. The panoramic view is a nice alternative if you’re not interested in trekking the canyon. Also, from the Dead Sea, there’s a viewing platform where Wadi Mujib runs into the Dead Sea. We passed this point twice. First, the river was nothing but a trickle, but after the rains, the water was rushing.

This was my favourite activity we did in Jordan, I absolutely loved it! I love any water activities, and this was such a fun experience.

We had to wait quite a while to enter as it was Friday so very busy. My husband isn’t a strong swimmer and isn’t a fan of water.I read blog posts which said that the water would only go to your waist but that wasn’t true during our visit. Many times you had to swim, needed strong upper body strength and sometimes you were fully submerged in the water! It was much harder to do than I realised which for me made it more fun, but not for my husband haha.

I was highly recommend doing this!

This will be a detailed review because I wish I read up more before going.
Okay, before leaving your home/hotel pack a bag of spare clothes. The full works, undies to trainers and socks and hijabs, cuz you will get soaked. Wear thick sole trainers and long running trousers (protect your legs from scratching on rocks). Take off your wedding bands you don't want them cutting into your skin (happened to me)
Take cash. There is no pay by card method and it gets awkward. Take approx 20JOD each if you are not a resident.
Leave phones and goods in the car. There is a place to leave your car keys inside.
The Google pics of this journey only show you the shallow parts of this water hike. You will lose everything that isn't secured to your body. They offer a 10JOD water proof bag so you can take your phones... Don't get it! This bag is a nuisance and you will lose it. You need your hands free at all times. I saw a guy with his camera and at the end he had no camera. A guy had a go-pro attached to his head, it was gone half way through.
Wear a life jacket that isn't big and fits well. Will explain later why. This can save your life.
Now the hike itself. It's an AMAZING experience. However it does require some level of fitness. There are moments where you are submerged in water and need to climb rops, ladders and rocks while getting beaten in the face by a water fall. I would not recommend this for the frail, elderly (a woman was freaking out she couldn't move past a certain point and she looked like she was in her 50s bless her) or faint of heart. There will be cuts and bruises and shameful falling. People tend to help each other out which is lovely.
Now, going back down is the same route as going back up. It is clear that all the tools in place are designed to go up and not down, it gets frightening. There are moments where you slide down and hit the water and go under. You MUST be able to swim. On the second jump I got stuck under the current and couldn't get back up. My life jacket was too loose and not secured to my body. My husband pulled me up the moment I inhaled water into my lungs because I thought I'd reached the surface. Another guy jumped in to save me when they realised I wasn't resurfacing. Yes guys, I could have died. And that's why I'm writing this detailed review because they're website is rubbish and hardly enough info to prepare you.
If you visit Jordan then deffo opt for this. It's fine in the Summer cuz it's all in water. Drink plenty before starting the hike. There is nothing saying you cannot turn back after any point. It's gets harder as you keep going. Some do a 1/3 and turn around, no shame in that.

Really enjoyed the Siq Wet Trail, if you get the chance, do it!
Here's a few tips;
Rent the water shoes for 5JD - they work well, they're not slippery and they let the water through.
Wear leggings or shorts and a t-shirt and not ones that come off easily (the water is powerful).
There's a bit of sliding along on your backside in places so a swimsuit is not the best attire.
Do not wear glasses - if you really need them, tie them on tightly.
Don't bother bringing a wet bag for your phone etc, too awkward to carry.
I'm 173 cm and I was out of my depth in some places (there are ropes to hold on to and you are given a buoyancy jacket). If you're small bring along a tall friend to help!
Other people on the trail are very helpful, giving direction on how to make it past the mini waterfalls.
The water is warm.
You won't get sun burnt.
If you're super cautious or not moderately fit and flexible or you don't like getting you're head wet, this is not for you.
There are no helmets.
The changing rooms have no seats, prepare to hop around on one foot when you're changing out of your very wet clothes.
Enjoy, you'll be glad you did it!

If you like being a bit adventurous, this will be for you. It'll take you about an hour to get to the waterfall, and an hour back. It depends on the season how much water there is, and ultimately how difficult it will be. Expect to do some climbing and swimming, especially early in the season. There are changing rooms at the entrance to change your wet clothes.

If there were heavy rains the day before your planned visit, it could be closed.

The Mujib Nature Reserve gives people the opportunity to hike three (I think) different paths in varying intensity. It is directly off the road, easy to find and parking is plentiful.

After some research done beforehand, we decided we only wanted to take the short (easiest) hike, which should take about 1-2 hours.. through a canyon with waterfalls and arriving at a spectacular waterfall.. Should be nice any easy....

When we arrived, we were greeted by the guides at the door. This is a hike that you can do without a guide, but the guides were available if you wanted. The man at the counter was informative and said we might want to reconsider taking a guide and said that the water levels were higher than normal and currents stronger than normal.. We declined, thinking it was just an attempt to get some tourists to spend some money and we are pretty experienced and fit people... I was wrong...
We grabbed some life vests and ventured into the canyon area. Immediately upon climbing down the ladder into the canyon, we were greeted by waste-deep water and a relatively strong current. The hike up the canyon was entirely in water that was waste deep or deeper. At many points, we were forced to swim up strong currents, then climb ladders up waterfalls. Ultimately it was not a problem and really an amazing experience, but we did see a number of people turning around because they could not physically handle it. Once to the end, the final waterfall was pretty cool and well worth it. Then we swam and hiked back. which at times, was even harder as our tired bodies needed to navigate strong currents at our back.
Overall, this is an amazing time to spend a few hours while at the dead sea. People just need to be prepared that if the currents are strong, a guide will really help you along. They know the right places to step, the right ways to swim and if all else fails, we even saw some guide dragging their clients by the vest to the end. Wear the proper attire and have some shoes that can grip on wet rocks and ladders.. sneakers might not be the best idea.. and get a guide if you are unsure of your physical abilities

As we went during winter, the Ibex trail was the only trail we could do and we were aware of that. The trail was nice, going on the canyon, along the dead sea with views on it, it's about 3hours.
We had two or three guides for about 15-20 persons and that was enough (one "guide" didn't have the official RSCN t-shirt so not sure he was a guide or not as he didn't really interact with the tourists). They were ok, answering our questions, and showing us the path, and stopping shortly for resting. Unfortunately they were not as interested as us to try to see the Ibex around (my partner and I brought binoculars, we were often looking around and trying to be quiet but with a group of 20 hikers, you can imagine it's pretty difficult).

Regarding the service at the RSCN site, apart from one old man who was extremely nice and attentive, the rest of the guys from the RSCN were not particularly friendly.

Minimum number of people is required for certain trails, try to organise yourself and call in advance to find out if other people are doing the trail you want to do otherwise you'll have to pay for 6 persons.

It is 21 JD per person to do Siq Trial, guide is extra cost, you won't get lost, there is only one way in and same way out, about 2.5 hours both ways. It can be hard when the water level is high, and if you are not tall. Strong arms can help a lot, since you need to use rope to drag yourself to the waterfall, when the water level is high, the water comes down from the waterfall can be very powerful to push your body away from it. If you can not rotate your hands one by one to move your body forward on a monkey bar, then it may be very hard for you when the water level is high enough that you can not stand when you are close to the waterfall. Life jacket will be provided for free.
