Top Descriptions

With views across the Jordan Valley, over Jerusalem, and down to the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo viewpoint has more to offer than the average hilltop. Couple this with some wonderful Byzantine mosaics and, most impressive of all, an almost perfectly preserved 531 AD mosaic, it is easy to get carried away with the historical worth of this site. It can get busy with pilgrims and tourists alike, but is well worth the ride up from or a Dead Sea resort. – Sarah
