Start the day by descending the old paths which zig zag steeply down though Ma’tan’s abandoned terraced gardens and spare a thought for the hard work of the people that lived here. Once over a track, the way continues down sometimes between cliffs into the depths of Wadi Labun, crossing the final siq on an old donkey track which rises up and out to the S to fields and a small road. This leads pleasantly up amongst impressive scenery to the edge of Buseira (shops and Neolithic ruins of Bosra nearby). Beyond, a good track follows the rim of a nice valley out onto the pine covered crest of a hill. Good paths and tracks then lead down sometimes between cliffs towards ancient Dana village with the impressive Wadi Dana far below, leading the eye out to distant Wadi Araba. The track finally passes by springs and orchards before reaching Dana with its cafés, hotels and RSCN Visitor Center.
