Having done this early in the season when the water was high and then later in the season when the water was lower, I highly recommend everyone who is looking for a physical adventure to go. Don't wear or take anything that you are afraid to lose into this. I did take sunglasses and make it out with them, however I did lose a shoe making the end of the journey a bit uncomfortable. Tennis shoes are fine, however you will want to make sure that they are on tight. The water doesn't ruin clothing or shoes like most of these wadis as it is pretty clean. It took us about 1.5 hours to get there and an hour to get back when the water was high in early June. I think it took us less than two hours both ways in mid-August when it was lower even though we were stuck behind a large group which is strange early in the morning. We did go behind the water fall and then go underneath it to get shot out which was a lot of fun. I believe kids under 18 are not allowed, and for good reason...I would also suggest that if you are not physically in-shape to stay behind. There were several people both times we went that were not good swimmers and put those of us who were and tried to help them in harms way.

Spent a couple of hours walking and scrambling up the canyon. Being the summer the water level was not too high, but still plenty coming down to make the whole experience enjoyable and good fun. The rock formations are stunning to see. Wear swimwear and water shoes; they provide life jackets which you have to wear. Its ok to wear glasses, but ensure you have a safety strap, just in case they fall off. I definitely recommend paying extra (30JD) for a guide as there are a couple of places which could be quite challenging without local knowledge. The guide will also have a drypack so can carry your phone / camera and knows where to take good photos of you and the location. Best to go in the morning as the afternoon can get quite busy. There are toilets where you can change into dry clothes when you leave. Note it closes n the winter as there is too much water coming down.

You start at the visitor center where you are given the life jacket. You don’t need a guide.
You will get wet from head to toe (use waterproof bag for cellphones). Also wear rock shoes.
It was amazing, you have to be somewhat fit, there is some swimming, climbing rocks with the aid of ropes or metal ladders.
It ends at the waterfall.
The way back just let go & drift down the river
Amazing experience

We did the Siq trail. It was fun and exciting! You can basically just drive there, go to the visitor center and start the activity, we did not have to book in advance. Moderate fitness would be good. We did the tour with the two of us, no guide, but there were guides stationed at difficult positions in the canyon to help everyone. Best to leave everything in the car , as you will be soaking wet and no chance to take pictures. Don't be afraid - I was worried it would be very difficult or there would be big heights and jumps, but I was just fine. Wear sturdy shoes!

This is such a beautiful view. We enjoyed our drive from mafaba to kerak through wadi mujid. We stopped at lehun to enjoy an unobstructed view of the mountain and greenery. We stopped by several lookouts along our drive. Our fav was at the grand canyon lookout with locals selling souvenirs. We also drove through the dam and stopped at sammi who showered us with hospitality and fun stories. The views were tremendous.

The King's Road is a wonderful roadtrip, and its best passage is crossing the canyon of Wadi Mujib. You arrive from North at the panoramic viewpoint on the canyon; then your car gas to go down for 9 km, along a curvy narrow road, until the bottom. Then you drive across the dam that stops the Wadi Mujib river (police there), and climb up the other side of the canyon, for 9 km again. Try to arrive at the top for twilight...

I recomend just to see travelling on Kings Highway or move to Dessert Road and make a walk. Exciting views ,you dont want to move from your stop on the way ... Its a big lesson of earth history and geology... Very few people ... Just must see

Fantastic day out! The sik trail is challenging to say the least.. there are ropes to assist but I would highly recommend getting a guide. The rocks are high and slippery and unless you have a good amount of upper body strength it's a bit of hard work! It was fantastic and I'd love to return. They say one hour there and one hour back which is about right, you can take your time though if you want to take it in a bit more. You will be fully submerged and get very wet so only take a waterproof camera or phone as anything else will get soggy. No flip flops, need trainers. Shorts and tshirt or leggins were a good option... worth every penny!

What an amazing roadway through the "Grand Canyon of the Middle East". This road is complete with blind curves and hairpin turns...not for the faint-hearted. The rest stop above the reservoir gives one incredible views of this amazing canyon. A small population resides in these hills, farming and tending goats and sheep. There is even a school on the road towards the reservoir.
This is definitely something you want to see when driving in Jordan.
