Day 3: Petra - Madaba - Mt Nebo - Dead Sea - Amman Airport
This morning we descend the al-Sharah Mountains to reach the Rift Valley and the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth (420 metres below sea level). Along the way we will stop at Lot's Wife's Pillar. Continue travelling north beside the Dead Sea to reach the Public Beach at the northern end. Try floating in the water, 7 times saltier than regular seawater. We will ascend back into the mountains to visit Mt Nebo where God showed Moses the Promised Land before he died. A short distance from Mt Nebo is Madaba, known for the detailed mosaic map discovered on the floor of the 6th Century St Georges Church which shows all major biblical sites from Lebanon to Egypt. Late afternoon we transfer you to Queen Alia International Airport for departure.
