Wadi Ad Dhunaybah
Irbid Governorate, Jordan
City On The Hill: Wadi DhunaybahAlmost like 4 Points in Utah, Wadi Dhunaybah/Shajara is sandwiched between Syrian, Palestinian, and Lebanese borders in Jordan. 20 minutes outside Ramtha, the Northern Province. Wadi Rum is a desert; this Wadi was a lush, green carving. Syrian smugglers were caught on the bottom road by border police during our visit, and we traversed old Roman caverns scoured by treasure-hunters. Not on your Lonely Planet list!
