We took the trail towards end of March and the guide mentioned the trail was closer to 14 km in length. We started around 8ish and took closer to 4 PM for us to complete the trail. I also took couple of 12 and 13 year olds and in some areas, the trail had 6 foot drops and you might need to walk over 2 foot water. Take a water shoes if you have one... We saw snakes, crabs and various other insects as we walked through the Wadi.
Since this was our first Wadi hike in Jordan, we liked the overall setup with palm trees growing on the sides, walking in shade and occasional rests. Plan to spend full day at the Wadi. It also does not hurt to be in better athletic shape (clearly we were not) as well as have a guide who can direct you through the right paths as well as help you if needed.
We booked a guide named 'Saleem' from Dana Village hotel named 'Dana Tower Hotel'.
One thing to mention is that everyone who used items did put their trash wherever they used the items with no regard to preserving nature and greenery. Though this might not be a big problem today, as more trash gets piled up along the Wadi without any cleaning, the beauty and nature of the Wadi will be impacted. I strongly wish for tourists as well as locals take a secondary bag along with them during hiking and collect their trash without leaving them in the Wadi so that Wadi's beauty gets preserved for generations.
