Sole Potential – Giving Children A Fair Start
Charity Trek – Petra, Jordan
30th October – 6th November 2022
- A 5 day trek along a breath-taking section of the Jordan Trail
- Experience floating in the iconic Dead Sea
- Visit one of the New 7 Wonders of the World
- Discover the ancient ‘rose city’ of Petra, a UNESCO world heritage site
- Witness a blanket of stars as you camp Bedouin-style in the desert.
This new challenge offers a chance to trek through some of the most exhilarating and rugged landscapes in Jordan. You will walk through deep, dramatic gorges and canyons shaped by the elements as well as crossing high ridges on routes once known only to the local Bedouin.
From Dana Nature Reserve, the path along the edge of the desert is surprisingly rich in flora and fauna. The high cliffs are home to Ibex and many species of birds, and the deep valley floor supports a variety of plants. The trail crosses the desert through wide dry river beds leading back into the mountains to climb up and over high passes.
The highlight of the challenge will be the entry into ancient city of Petra where you’ll cross a high plateau and be treated to the sight of the Monastery of Petra gradually coming into view before you twist and turn your way through the Siq into this spectacular ancient Nabatean city. This tough and enchanting challenge is the perfect introduction to magical Jordan!
