Essentially, the country is made up of three main geographical areas: the Mountain Heights Plateau in the centre, the Badia region to the cast and the country’s famous Jordan Rift Valley, Retro Jordans,which follows a route along its entire western border. The Mountain Heights Plateau stretches north to south in a spine-like fashion, with many of its peaks reaching well over 1,500m (4,920ft). The south of Jordan is dominated by the country’s highest mountain landscape, which stretches south of the vast sandy and rocky terrain of the Wadi Rum to the Saudi Arabia border. Its peak, the Jabal Umm ad Dami, reaches a height of 1,854m (6,083ft) above sea level, and can often be seen covered with a brilliant white dusting of snow that glistens as the sun rises. In sharp contrast to the mountains is the Dead Sea region, which at -420m (-1,378ft) is the lowest point on dry earth. The landscape here is stark, yet the sea’s still waters and its visible boulders covered with white crystal-like salt give it a sense of tranquillity.The north of the country enjoys a largely Mediterranean climate and is characterised by great swathes of evergreen forest and a landscape of fruit trees. Apples, pears, plums, citrus fruits, grapes and olives thrive here, and are simply delicious. There are acres of arable land too, which is used for growing crops such as wheat, corn and cereals. Towards the northwest, Jordans Shoes,vegetables like potatoes, cauliflowers and aubergine, that have for centuries provided the staple ingredients for many local dishes, dominate. Together, these areas produce more than half of all the fresh food products eaten by Jordanians today.The Badia region, comprising five deserts including the Eastern Desert, Central Desert and to the south the Rum Desert, extends to the country’s easternmost borders. It is a huge, arid, golden, jordan releases,desert-like plateau that stretches for miles, interspersed by the lush greenery of an odd oasis, areas of desert steppes, several seasonal streams and a handful of settlements, towering mountains and extraordinary rock formations.
