Visit the most famous hot springs and hyper-thermal waterfall in Jordan at Hammamat Ma’in and admire the surrounding beauty of this desert oasis near the Dead Sea.
The site is also linked to the Biblical Herod the Great who is said to have bathed in its medicinal waters. These thermal falls originate from winter rainfalls in the highland plains of Jordan and eventually feed the 109 hot and cold springs in the valley. This water is naturally heated to temperatures up to 45 degrees Celsius by underground lava fissures as it makes its way through the valley before emptying into Zarqa.
Spend some memorable moments with your family at the gushing warm waterfall at the ‘family pool’ or luxuriate at the indoor Roman baths.
