Dana Nature Reserve
Flora and fauna
A bus can be caught in Ma'an to Qadisiyyeh or Tafileh that can drop you at the junction in Qadisiyyeh that leads to Dana village (as of October 2013). It may also be possible to get a bus from Aqaba, but this is not confirmed. From the junction it is quite a walk downhill, but many locals will offer to drive you down for 1 or 2 jd.
Most sights here relate to the RSCN and the Dana Biosphere Nature Reserve.
Entry to the reserve costs (as of October 2013) 8.20jd. There are several trails in the reserve that can be walked, all except one requiring a guide. The exception is a walk along the bottom of the valley, which can lead to Feynan Lodge in around 5 hours, but should one not wish to stay there, the trail can be walked as far as desired returning then to Dana village. Be aware that the journey back includes quite an increase in altitude, and consequently is much harder than the journey out. The guided tours bring with them the cost of the guide, and involve usually climbing of some sort. The RSCN lodge in Dana village can advise about these issues.
The workshops run by the RSCN can also be seen, but these are frankly uninteresting.
The village itself is a sight of sorts, being constructed mostly from traditional stone and mud houses. It is very small however.
There is nothing in town that strictly qualifies as a restaurant. Both the Dana Hotel and the Dana Tower Hotel offer meals.
The supply of tea is unlimited, and you do not need to go looking for it, as it will be offered frequently by anyone you're doing business with.
Selection is limited
