From the village of Burma, the trail descends to the King Talal Dam and provides a view across the large expanse of water stretching eastward between forested shores. It then crosses the dam wall and ascends to a hilltop ridge, which it follows south past rich farmlands to the mixed Christian and Muslim village of Rmemeen with its café and neighboring church spire and minaret.

 Beyond, it follows a track up a narrow, winding agricultural valley, climbing near Ahliyya University to reach the Christian village of Fuheis and the nearby Carakale Brewery – the first microbrewery in Jordan.

Days: 4

Length: 61.6 km

Main sites in the Ajloun to Fuhais Region:

The fifth day of the Jordan trail from Ajloun to Khirbet Al-Souq :

Good views and an enjoyable walk south down the sparsely pine forested hill to Wadi Al-Tawaheen start the day. Once over the wadi, small tracks head back up passing olive groves and avoiding the towns of Anjara and Kufrinja before winding round the W end of the hills above. Country lanes then continue past the old abandoned village of Sarabees with its spring then on over more rolling hills still on quiet county lanes and down into pretty Wadi Mahmoud with its eponymous cliff (good sports climbs). A nice path follows the cliff top round to the next valley and Khirbet al-Souq (homestay).

Day #6 from Khirbet Al-Souq to King Talal Dam

The track heads through a secluded wooded valley onto the crest of the hill with dramatic views over the hillside village of Burma to the King Talal Dam and beyond. Paths then lead down to the east of Burma (shops off route) through old forests and farming areas to the King Talal reservoir and dam.

Day #8 from

Leave the village by the road and continue along a good track up a deep valley between gardens, eventually rising up to cross a highway near Al Ahliyya university, then making you way around the head of the next valley touching the outskirts of the Christian town of Fuheis. The Carakale Brewery is a few kilometers beyond the stage end.
