Climb from Khirbet as-Souq to a ridgeline above Wadi Zarqa. Take in the impressive views before descending to the wadi bottom 1,000m below. Then, begin a long climb out of the canyon — a demanding ordeal on hot days! Once you reach the top of the climb, your day is not done. After riding along the opposite rim of the canyon, descend to another valley and climb to Rumeimeen – the waterfall below the town offers a nice break spot – before continuing up to Fuheis.
Wadi al-Bir (at the top of the initial climb from Wadi Zarqa) has a substantial grocery store, bakery, and falafel shop; Rumeimeen has several small stores with basic supplies; the Amman-Salt highway has a number of stores and restaurants.
Fuheis has a number of substantial stores and restaurants.
