Prepare yourself for the hardest day of the entire route! After a wonderful descent to the bottom of Wadi Mujib — often called Jordan’s Grand Canyon —you have to climb well over 1000m before reaching the canyon’s opposite rim. Go slow and try to enjoy the views as you plod your way to the top. Once you reach the plateau, enjoy a brief, flat respite as you pass through a number of small villages. Finally, from Rakin, make a technical descent into the valley below Karak and endure the last (300m) climb into Karak (bonus points if you manage to ride the entire ascent!).
Dhiban offers many grocery stores and restaurants.
There are two springs (filter) on the climb out of Wadi Mujib; a small store (just snacks and drinks) in Frewan. Faqu’a has small shops with basic supplies and a bakery (services 1.2 km off-route), and there are some small shops in Rakin.
