Hammamat Ma'in
The Essential
Interesting
Located in the Wadi Zarqa Ma'in Gorge, the spa town of Hammamat Ma'in has been renowned since Antiquity. All year round, its hot waters (up to 60°C) cascade down the canyon cliffs. The largest waterfall, opposite the Ma'in Hot Springs Hotel, is over 45m high. The sulphurous water is rich in minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium), which dye the rock yellow, ochre and green, and a white deposit forms in the pools where people take the waters.
