A moderate hike that begins at the Dead Sea. Park at O Beach. This hike is about 8km in total. The hike follows the wadi floor along a stream. There is bird life, wild crabs, frogs, et cetera. The terrain becomes difficult after about 2.8kms as there is a steep incline to navigate as the trail had been washed out by rains (2013). The slope is a 45-50% grade. Once atop the wadi rim, the views are well rewarded. The return is along the northern rim which gives new views and an easier descent.

    A group of friends and I hiked this trail on 15/04/2016 and the recent rains had created slides, making the trail easier in some areas and more difficult in others. There was a lot of water (even at the beginning of the trail) and it was very beautiful. We saw a lot of frogs, crabs, and birds as well as trees and greenery. Make sure you have some bouldering and/or climbing experience for this hike as there are several spots where small climbs are necessary, especially after the recent rock slides.

    Do we need ropes for rappelling?

    I have the same question as Mohanad. Do you need ropes or is it doable without ropes?

    Unless things have changed, ropes are not needed. However some care must be taken where some of the trail has been washed away. It a very rewarding hike.
