    The route starts from the city of Salt, then takes walkers past the ancient palace of Iraq Al-Ameer before descending on the spectacular King Hussein’s Rally Road to the Jordan Valley. The climate and scenery now changes, becoming warmer and more arid as the trail crosses the harsh plateau overlooking the Dead Sea and passes scattered Bedouin camps. Here, the path joins a Roman road connecting the northern Dead Sea with the fortress of Mukawir (Machaerus). Along the way, it passes over a ridge before descending through the basalt cliffs and permanent stream of Wadi Zarqa Main. Walkers then pass north of Mukawir before descending into the deep chasm of Wadi Wala.
