On Mt. Nebo, from which Moses viewed the Promised Land, take in the view of the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea, Jericho and (if it's clear) the distant spires the hills , and Mount of Olives, and visit the contemporary church with its display of mosaics from the succession of pilgrimage churches on this venerated spot. Descend to the Dead Sea, lowest point on the earth's surface, and tour the newly-excavated Al Maqdas the (Baptism Site). Noted on the mosaic map of Madaba which makes it easy to believe that it was the spot where John the Baptist lived in the wildness, and where Jesus was baptized in the waters of the Jordan River. The extensive water channels, cisterns and baptismal fonts, as well as the impressive size of the very early (3rd-4th Century) pilgrimage churches on this site, certainly suggest that this is where the earliest Christian pilgrims believed the Baptism took place. The walk past "Elijah's well" to the St. John church on the banks of the Jordan is a pleasure in itself, as you follow the winding trail through marshes of high reeds and tamarisk trees. Proceed to the Dead Sea Spa Hotel for a swom with lunch, late afternoon transfer to your hotel in Amman.
