The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan.
This plaque shows the distance from Mount Nebo to various locations throughout the region.

On March 19, 2000, Pope John Paul II visited the site during his pilgrimage to the Holy Land (Mount Nebo being one of the most important Christian sites in Jordan). During his visit he planted an olive tree beside the Byzantine chapel as a symbol of peace.
