Weather of Arabia - Mujib Biosphere Reserve is considered the lowest natural reserve in the world, as it is located in the deep Mujib Valley, a little east of the Dead Sea, and at a depth of up to 410 meters below sea level. The reserve, with its charming natural landscape, extends to the Karak and Madaba mountains, north and south, and in some places its height reaches 900 meters above sea level. Wadi Mujib has an amazing biodiversity that is still being discovered and documented today, as a result of its differences in altitudes of up to 1,300 meters and the flow of water in the valley throughout the year from seven tributaries. More than 300 genera of plants and ten genera of animals have been documented, in addition to many species of migratory and non-migratory birds. The reserve, especially in remote and inaccessible areas in the mountains and valleys, is a safe haven for rare species of cats, goats and mountain animals. The sandstone slopes of Wadi Mujib are an ideal habitat for one of the world's most important mountain goat species: the Nubian ibex.
