Program Description
This episode highlights some of the best of classic Jordan, including Petra, Aqaba, Wadi Mujib and the Dead Sea. Darley begins with a visit to the magical city of Petra, where she and her local guide Ibrahim explore by camel, foot and horseback, riding in the lesser-visited suburb of Little Petra and passing through the siq to catch the Treasury, made famous in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, in the morning light. Darley learns about the local legends surrounding the Treasury and its contents, as she rides a camel by the Treasury. Next, Darley meets a longtime Petra resident, Marguerite van Geldermalsen. A New Zealander who fell in love with a Bedouin and lived in a cave in Petra for over 20 years, Marguerite shares her unique insight on Petra and Bedouin culture from the eyes of an outsider/ From Petra, Darley travels the Dead Sea Highway to the Dead Sea, where she floats in the mineral-rich waters at the lowest point on earth. Darley hikes Wadi Mujib, a huge water-filled canyon known to adventure travelers as an ultimate hike. Within Wadi Mujib, Darley is challenged to rappel down a waterfall, scale rocks and float through the canyon's corridors. Next, Darley heads to the desert, where she camps with local Bedouins and explores the stunning canyons, dunes and petroglyphs of Wadi Rum on Arabian horses. On a break from the desert, Darley travels to the Gulf of Aqaba, bordered by Jordan, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, to snorkel above Aqaba's colorful reef.
