Tour Itinerary of Kings Hwy from Amman to Petra (Madaba, Mt Nebo, Wadi Mujib Viewpoint, Karak, Dana Viewpoint) :

Today you will travel to Petra on the Kings Hwy a route that has been in use for centuries. Your driver will pick you up from the hotel at 8:00 and transfer you to Madaba. Best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, Madaba is home to the famous 6th century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. With two million pieces of vividly coloured local stone, it depicts hills and valleys, villages and towns as far as the Nile Delta. The Madaba Mosaic Map covers the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, which is located northwest of the city centre. The church was built in 1896 AD, over the remains of a much earlier 6th century Byzantine church. The mosaic panel enclosing the Map was originally around 15.6 X 6m, 94 sq.m., only about a quarter of which is preserved.

You will then proceed to Mount Nebo where Moses is said to have stood and looked out to the Promised Land. On a clear day you can look out over the Dead Sea and all the way to Jerusalem.

Continuing down the Kings Hwy you will stop at the Wadi Mujib viewpoint. Known as the Grand Canyon of Jordan this is an expansive valley and offers great views.

Drive to Karak where you will visit Karak Castle the famous Crusader castle built in 1132/34 by King Baldwin I. of Jerusalem.

You will continue down the Kings Hwy to Dana where you will stop and look at the viewpoint.

If there is time you can stop and visit Shobak Castle.

Continue to Petra where you will end your trip.
