Five Indian TV celebrities – Kishwer Merchant, Pooja Gor, Pryanca Talukdar, Asha Negi and Mrunal Thakur – visited Jordan recently on an adventure trip
“The Jordan sojourn trip was planned to take them to numerous places in Jordan which are famous for adventure and their scenic beauty, and will appeal to the Indian audience. We look forward to create an outstanding content from the Xtreme trip,” said Ashit Taneja, country manager- Jordan Tourism Board.
The trip kicked off in Amman where the group walked visited the local restaurants, coffee shops, shisha (Hookah) bars, local theatres, bars and souvenirs shops. The first activity of the trip started with hiking and biking the Jordan Trail, 8km from Umm Qais. The Jordan Trail crosses the entire county, offering over 650 kilometres of hiking. “We participated in the trail that starts from Umm Qais and we got a taste of the exciting adventure that the entire trail offers,” said Pryanca Talukdar.
The other activity on the itinerary was Wadi Al Hidan – a 4km canyoning task including swimming through 12 bodies of water – before camping in Wadi Rum.
“Wadi Hidan is a canyon with a river running through it, which eventually leads to Wadi Mujib, which leads all the way to the Dead Sea. The hike we did consists of hiking along wet/dry trails alongside the river, swimming through slot canyons, and had some optional cliff jumping and natural water slides which were exhilarating and wonderful,” said Asha Negi.
