What better way to chill in the summer than hiking in a canyon!
Weida’a canyon is located in south of Jordan on the way to Karak. A short hike of no more than 3km back and forth yet the beauty of the canyon is not to be missed.
A perennial stream of cold and warm water gushing from the springs invigorates ones senses.
If you want wet, then the pools and the waterfalls are the places to chill.
Looking up, you are surrounded with limestone rocks decorated with palm trees, oleanders, and the fragrant myrtle bushes from both sides.
Along the way, the croaking frogs, the crabs, the beautiful fish, and multitude of dragon flies are your best hiking companion.
But the best is yet to come. Watching the sunset and enjoying the starry sky of Karak with amazing friends is the cherry on top.
