This week is officially the first week of fall, that time of year where summer folds up on itself as autumn equinox takes place. We can’t deny our joy to be welcoming nature’s most beautiful annual shows of foliage and them short cozy days; but part of us still wishes summer would linger on just a little bit longer and for that we are here to continue celebrating the last drops of summer. This week’s events are all about outdoor activities and festivities while enjoying weather that is a bit more bearable too.

’tis time to bid Summer adieu!

Ready for a memorable outdoor experience that suits all types of hikers?

This pleasant 6 km walk through a basalt and sandstone canyon winds through groves of pink flowers, leading to an epic 25 meter abseil (rappel) into a secret natural basin where hikers can splash in a pool with a waterfall and go on to admire sweeping views of the canyon. Descending down through this huge waterfall is a wild and watery adventure and is one of the finest descents one can find in our beautiful Jordan. The hike offers some splashing and sliding before ending at the famous hot mineral springs of Maain, from which the canyon takes its name.

If you’re craving some abseiling magic; get your booking done now on the company’s official website.
