Jordan Geography

Jordan is generally a flat desert plateau, east and west, as the western edges of the Syrian and Ard As Sawwan deserts stretch across the land.

In the west, the Great Rift Valley (high hills and mountains) separates the East and West Banks of the Jordan River.

Significant bordering bodies of water include the Dead Sea, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Sea of Galilee.
