The water touches Israel and Jordan and winds around the Sea of Galilee and ends at the Dead Sea, locations which are also very popular to Christians and Jews alike. The Jordan is around 156 miles long but what amazes people most is that at its widest point it’s only 30 yards across and at most 10 feet deep. The river’s elevation drops pretty quickly which speeds up the river’s current and makes areas north of Galilee popular for rafting.
There aren’t that many places geographically that have been mentioned back thousands of years in history but the Jordan River is one of them. I can’t imagine how moving it would be to have the opportunity to see it for myself. I keep saying that I’ll travel to Israel when it appears safe which is why I haven’t gone there yet.
