        Top Tips

        It can get rather windy up here; hold onto your hats!
        This viewpoint is inside so you will have to pay the JOD2 entrance fee to access it.
        Bring water with you. It is a little walk from the car park and there aren’t amenities inside.

                Strategically built atop one of Jordan’s many hills, this 12th century castle offers outstanding views across and beyond . Though quite dilapidated inside, Karak Castle is a decent size site with lots of nooks and crannies and even a couple of tunnels to satisfy the inner explorer. – Sarah

                Top Tips

                Apart from a few souvernir sellers and guides, there isn’t much in the castle. If you are hungry, there are eateries lining the car park.
                This is a far superior site to , so if you only fancy one such attraction then make it Karak Castle.
                Though there are signs around the site, a little internet research before visiting this castle will no doubt enhance your experience.
                There are dark nooks and tunnels here so it may be worth bringing a flashlight.
