Start from Karak and enjoy the impressive views of the city’s castle on the way out of town. Continue along a number of kilometers of dirt road through small Jordanian villages and shepherds’ tents on your way to Wad Hasa, the last of the major wadis that you’ll cross on your journey. Have fun on the long descent to the wadi bottom and prepare yourself for a long ascent to the canyon’s far rim—don’t worry, though; it’s not nearly as hard some of the other climbs you’ve completed!
There are many restaurants and grocery stores in Karak
Stores off-route (1.3km) in Al-Mazar; Abu Bana has stores with basic supplies.
