    The Dana Village area, overlooking the scenic Wadi Dana, has been occupied since about 4,000 BC.

    While hiking pass the eastern side of smaller hills Jabal al-Hamra, Jabal Mahzan and Jabal Barwas.

    With Wadi Araba to the West & the rising mountains to the East, gradually ascend the slope to also cross Wadi Barwas, Wadi abu Hamdtha and Wadi al-Jilf to reach a point near the shallow wadi, Climb up on this trail on switchbacks through the jagged rocky mountain outcroppings, and take a break to see the marvelous view of Wadi Araba’s wash to the west below.

    Continue along the same path up a wide slot following the old Bedouin route reinforced with bridges using Juniper branches and well-graded switchbacks. The slot widens to the top where you reach the saddle called Ras Naqb Shdeid, offering breathtaking views in both directions.

    Continue downhill, finding the same old path to the right side of the saddle, cutting the steep grade down at the top, and flattening up as it winds to the left to follow a small gully and meet perennially spring-fed Wadi Feid below. Turn right along Wadi Feid to access a pool above a large dry waterfall, great for cooling down and washing up.
