King's Highway

It is the ancient rout between Amman and Petra. In the 1st millennium BC this rout liked the kingdoms of Ammon, Moab and Edom. In the Nabatean times it was used to transport goods like frankincense, Myrrh, and spices from the Southern Arabia to the Mediterranean, Hellenistic and the Roman world. Along this route are the most historical sites of Jordan.

It goes along the mountains to the east of the Dead Sea. You drive through the small towns, which are depending on agriculture.
