the world's most spectacular roads

Mount Nebo is a mountain pass at an elevation of 817 meters (2680 feet) above the sea level, located in Jordan, an Arab kingdom in Western Asia. Known locally as Siyagha, Mount Nebo is the highest point in this part of the ancient kingdom of Moab.

The road to reach the pass is asphalted. On the top, there’s a small museum and gift shop. Mount Nebo, forms part of a range of mountains running along the western border of Jordan. This peak was mentioned in the Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land that he would never enter.

  

The drive is definitely worth it. Don’t forget your camera! From the top of Mount Nebo you have an expansive view of the surrounding area. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan. The West Bank city of Jericho is usually visible from the summit, as is Jerusalem on a very clear day.
