Dana Nature Reserve

Dana Nature Reserve is a system of Wadis and mountains that extend from the top of the Rift Valley down to the desert lowlands of Wadi Araba. Dana is truly a world of natural treasures. Visitors to Dana can experience the beauty of Rummana mountain, the mystery of the ancient archaeological ruins of Feinan, the timeless tranquility of Dana Village, and the grandeur of the red and white sandstone cliffs of Wadi Dana. Dana is a large reserve (310 square km.), established as a protected area in 1989. It contains a remarkable diversity of landscapes, ranging from wooded highlands and rocky slopes to gravel plains and sand dunes. It supports a wide variety of wildlife, including many rare species of plants and animals.The Dana village area, over looking the scenic Wadi Dana, has been occupied since about 4000 BC. Archeological evidence indicates that the fertile soil, water springs and the strategic location of the village have drawn big civilization to control it.
Even though this village was nearly abandoned by its families to the nearby village of Qadissiya, in search of better jobs, schools and housing. Today, the village is coming back to life with color and vitality, the people of Dana have rebuilt many of their traditional stone houses with the help of the (friends of Dana). This group of women from Amman raised enough money to restore 65 homes and built a new mosque for the village.

Through RSCN Wadi Dana project, the villagers have also restored their beautiful terrace gardens and are producing traditional handcrafts and jewelry for sale.
