After an early breakfast we leave Wadi Rum heading back north to the famous Salahuddin conquered castle, in Karak.

Built by the Frankish knights, during the reign of Baldwin II, was occupied by the notoriously treacherous and brutal Reynald de Chatillion. Reynald broke the truce, which prompted Saladin to attack and defeat the crusader armies and to take control of Jerusalem.

We pass by the site of a significant battle fought during the Prophet Mohammad’s (peace be upon him) lifetime; the Battle of Mu’ta in 629 AD. Buried close by are the close companions who died in battle, Zaid bin Harithah , Ja’far bin Abi Talib and Abdullah bin Ruwahah.

Making our way past the famous Dead Sea, we stop for a fin filled afternoon at a Muslim run Resort. Here you enjoy a refreshing swim in the resort pools followed by a group buffet dinner.
