Basic Info:

The trail leaves the Jebel Harun trail, heading south out of the valley before descending into the upper reaches of Wadi Sabra with a wild mountain landscape ahead though which the trail finds its way for the next five days. Once in Sabra, the remains of a Roman theatre are passed near a spring with palms. The way then follows the valley easily down, alongside what is usually a small stream which eventually plunges into a box canyon above Wadi Al-Tibn. The canyon is bypassed by a shepherds’ path on its right that winds steeply down into the lower valley of Sabra. This is then followed for a further 5km before leaving it over low hills to camp on either side of, but not far from, the Rajif to Gharandal road.

Transportation:

Snake Monument is close to Wadi Musa; Ein Imshit is remote and only accessible by private jeep. Closest road is 6km to the east and only accessible by jeep or foot

Accommodations:

You can wild camp in the area of the Snake Monument (it can’t hurt to ask a local if this is OK, and for the best place to pitch tents)

Things to See:
Jebel Haroun (several km off-trail; a visit might take a half-day or more); Nabatean amphitheater in Wadi Ibtaahi

Water from Ein Imshit
