Walks, treks, caves and climbs in the district of Al Ayoun just north of the great castle of Ajloun in North Jordan. It is a region with its own uniquely beautiful forested valleys, flower-covered springtime meadows, orchards, olive groves and sites of antiquity dating back into prehistoric times.

Al Ayoun is in beautiful limestone country with walks and treks to cater for all abilities. There is also caving here, including a recently discovered pothole, and new climbs on cliffs that have only recently been explored.

All this combined with Jordan’s famous hospitality exemplified by the people of Al Ayoun who welcome you to their villages, their home-stays, their unsurpassable local food, and to the Ayoun Trail and associated routes in this guide.

20 trails are described, though some of these only partly as full descriptions will be found in Jordan, Walks, Treks, Caves, Climbs & Canyons. The rock climbing so far documented is limited and in the easier grades. It is on limestone and largely trad. A few caves are also described.

Superbly illustrated with good maps and a great introduction to the area.

By Di Taylor and Tony Howard (Tony Howard was one of the founders and directors of the famed British climbing equipment company, Troll. He and Di have made over 40 visits to Jordan).

Card cover, 21cm x 15cm, 103 pages.
