The Reserve extends to the Karak and Madaba mountains to the north and south, reaching 900 metres above sea level in some places.

Over 300 species of plants, 10 species of carnivores and numerous species of permanent and migratory birds have been recorded. Some of the remote mountain and valley areas are difficult to reach, and thus offer safe havens for rare species of cats, goats and other mountain animals. Mujib's sandstone cliffs are an ideal habitat for one of the most beautiful mountain goats in the world, the horned Ibex.

The options are:
Siq trail 2-3 hours /self-guided - typically, open from the 1st of April until the 31st of October depending on suitable weather conditions.
