What people say

"Mount Nebo is one of the most important Christian pilgrimage sites in Jordan. However, the sight is also important to Jews and Muslims, as its significance relates to Moses. Mount Nebo is the place Moses first saw the "promised land" after his followers left Egypt. Today, there is a very modern church filled with Madaba style mosaics and art. Around the premise there is also a number of historic mosaics, making visiting Mount Nebo a bit akin to a museum. The real star of the show is the striking view looking out onto the western bank of the Jordan River and the Judean desert.ย "
"โ—๏ธ Arrive early while the temperatures are low and before all the tour buses arrive. ๐Ÿ“ท Get a family snap with the Serpentine Cross while you take in the views across the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem. ๐Ÿ“ท Cool off inside the recently constructed Basilica. Built over the ancient Byzantine Church which houses remnants of just some of the many mosaics Madaba, โ€œthe city of mosaicsโ€, is famous for. Can you find the tree of life? Name all the animals in the floor mosaic."
"The view is breathtaking from this mountain! You will find many ancient monuments around the mountain as well!"
