From the village a good track goes down into the long valley of Wadi Dana amidst splendid sandstone scenery. Follow it pleasantly down the valley eventually arriving at the award winning Feynan Eco Lodge which is in an area of Roman copper mines. If you are not spending the night there, continue down as the valley opens out, reaching Bedouin camps where camping facilities are available. Roman ruins and copper smelting sites not far away. Good sunset spot.
Before entering Dana Biosphere Reserve, please contact the reserve’s management to pay the entrance fees.

Dana Tower Hotel:
Wild camping is forbidden inside Dana Reserve (from just below the village to beyond Feynan lodge), but is possible at the base of the mountains, with a good spot near Wadi al-Malaqa. As there is no water at campsite, many places along the trail after Feynan are similar.
