Jordan - Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo

Madaba is perfect staring point to visit two very important religious destinations.  Mount Nebo is one of them. It is important site for Christians and Jews. This is a place of Moses's death after 40 years of wandering in the desert. Moses died within sight of the Promised Land on Mount Nebo. It was described in the Old Testament, Deuteronomy:
Then, leaving the Plains of Moab, Moses went up Mount Nebo, the peak of Pisgah opposite Jericho, and Yahweh showed him the whole country: Gilead as far as Dan, the whole of Naphtali, the country of Ephraim and Manasseh, the whole country of Judah as far as the Western Sea, the Negeb, and the region of the Valley of Jericho, city of palm trees, as far as Zoar. Yahweh said to him, 'This is the country which I promised on oath to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saying: I shall give it to your descendants. I have allowed you to see it for yourself, but you will not cross into it.' There in the country of Moab, Moses, servant of Yahweh, died as Yahweh decreed; he buried him in the valley, in the country of Moab, opposite Beth-Peor; but to this day no one has ever found his grave. Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, his eye undimmed, his vigour unimpaired. The Israelites wept for Moses on the Plains of Moab for thirty days. 
 Mount Nebo is a view point on Palestine/Israel.
