Basic Info:

Some road work to start, but little traffic and downhill with good views out past Tafileh to the Dead Sea, and easy walking. Once in the valley bottom a track heads off over rolling hills which are crossed enjoyably on small paths eventually arriving high above a small but pretty valley which is followed down on paths past olive groves at the end of which the way crosses a road. Continue down the side of the wadi passing more olive groves and orchards before arriving at the renovated ancient cliff top village of Ma’tan, dramatically located high above Wadi Labun.
