A journey through the Nebo Region is one of immense diversity in every way. Beginning in rolling, agricultural countryside, travelers will find themselves in a constant state of transition, slowly passing into warmer, more desertous landscapes and climate. Small villages dot the landscape and provide opportunities to interact with the regions’ welcoming people, who are perhaps as diverse as the terrain across which they are scattered. The sites of interest in the Nebo Region also vary in nature – from the country’s first microbrewery in Fuheis to Mt. Nebo itself, the legendary site of Moses’s death.

For walking in this region, the Jordan Trail is recommended. Find detailed resources on www.jordantrail.org
