This morning we drive for 10 minutes to Amman center. We visit the  citadel - Jabal al- Qal'ah, the highest point in Amman, on the slope of the hill we see the Roman Temple of Hercules, 2nd c. A.D. and buildings of Umayyad Palace 7th c. A.D.

After, we descend to the Roman Theatre, in the heart of Amman to see the traditional clothes museum.

Later this morning we carry on travelling south, just as traders, armies and pilgrims have done before us, along the impressive 5,000-year-old King's Highway to Kerak. Imposingly situated on a rocky outcrop next to the road and containing a maze of stone-vaulted halls and passageways, this ancient Crusader stronghold is the most famous among a chain of fortresses built for the Holy War against Islam.

Tonight we stay in Dana camp, in the heart Dana Reserve where Bedouins used to camp before the conservation of the reserve. This place is operated by locals who used to be hunters, shepherd and wood collectors.

Wadi Dana is the most important geological aspect in the Dana nature reserve. Its great canyon joins the rift valley through the Feynan desert (mentioned in the Bible as Fyenan).
