What is the Jordan River?

The Jordan River is the most important river in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which was named after Jordan. The Jordan River passes through the Levant, and is formed as a result of the confluence of three tributaries: Banias from Syria, Al-Land from northern Palestine, and Baraghit and Al-Hasbani from Syria. Lebanon, the upper Jordan River, which flows into Lake Tiberias, is formed.

 

When it exits Lake Tiberias, it forms the Lower Jordan River, and it also pours into it the tributaries of the Yarmouk River, the Zarqa River, the Kafrnaja Valley and Goliath.

 

Where does the Jordan River originate and where does it flow?

The Jordan River originates from the slopes of Mount Hermon (Mount Hermon), which lies between Syria and Lebanon, and flows south towards northern Palestine to Lake Tiberias, then exits from it and travels between Palestine and Jordan; Palestine is located on the western side and Jordan on the eastern side, and eventually flows into the Dead Sea, where the lowest point on earth is located, as the surface of the Dead Sea reaches (430 meters) below sea level.

 

The Jordan River is more than 360 km long, but because its course meanders, the actual distance between its source and the Dead Sea is less than (200 km).
