Location & Geography
Jordan is located at the heart of the Middle East. It is bordered by Syria in the North, Saudi Arabia in the East and South, Palestine in the West, Iraq in the East, and the Gulf of Aqaba in the South-west. The country’s terrain is variable with moderate elevation on the Eastern desert plateau, high mountains in the West, sandstone mountains in the South with the lowest land point at the Dead Sea. Inadequate rainfall constitutes a problem for the country. The countryside offers a diversity of climate and scenery. In spring desert winds bring higher temperatures. Daytime summer temperatures can be hot but nights are pleasant. In winter, it snows fairly on the mountains and in Amman.
