Ajloun - Ajloun Castle, Jordan: 13 reviews and 28 photos
The Ajloun Reserve is located in the Ajloun Highlands in woodlands which are like the original forest which once covered most of northern Jordan. Many woodland animals inhabit the reserve, including badgers, foxes and a few fierce wild boars; and also many typical birds like the great tit, gold finch, turtle dove, hooded crow and jay. In spring it is a profusion of wild flowers, with drifts of colourful anemones and wild rock roses. Two hiking trails have been laid out to stroll or hike more seriously in the forest.
There is a camp for overnight stays. It occupies a large grassy clearing, enclosed by oak, pistachio and strawberry trees and offers beautiful views of the reserve and beyond. On clear days, you can see the west bank and the snow- capping Jebel Sheikh in Lebanon. There are 10 four- person tented lodges available with small terraces and beds inside. The charges for sleeping go down from 20JD for 1 person to 15JD/person for 5 people or more.
The entrance fee is 3JD
