Karak is South of Amman and within easy reach via Madaba. It is an ancient town of strategic important for the trade routes and also during the Crusades and latter the Ottomans.
The most spectacular part is the drive down and across the valley via the road across a dam. One the otherside is a hotel atop the hill with fantasitc views, and they served a most delightful array of local dips, olives and breads, I think we spend almost an hour eating, watching the view and talking with the owner. The place is called Rest House Trajan and the can be contacted on 00962 3 2310295 – it is well worth the visit.
The slide shows some of the pics taken on this day, it was windy and cool but perfect blue skies.
