The Lisan Peninsula (Amman)

Hello all,

The Lisan peninsula, just west of Mazraa on the Dead Sea Road, is a little known treasure trove.
We will visit Dayr el-Qattar al-Bizanti, a byzantine monastery from the 4th century. From there we will try to find the hermit caves, Qasr al-Abyad and Qasr at-Tuba. Some walking/climbing will be necessary as these are located in the hills.
Most of the trip is on tarmac, but on the peninsula a 4x4 is required.

Some images of an earlier trip can be found here: Protected content

Interested to participate?
We will leave on Friday morning, October 23, 9am from Safeway at 7th Circle. Return the same day at 18:00.
No 4x4? No worries, we might have a seat for you.

Cost for this trip: JD15 per person, inclusive of lunch. If you share a seat in another car, please arrange sharing of the costs of fuel with the driver.

Kind regards,

Amman Forum
