Aqaba - Overland Route & Good Taxi Rental

Silk Tomb has a striking façade because the sandstone has layers of many different shades red, white, yellow and blue. It's one of the royal tombs overlooking the valley. You need to hike up to the hill.…Read More


Travelling in Jordan

Written by Igor on 09 Aug, 2000
