Do not go there!!! The site is unsecured and there are villagers from nearby that can enter for free. They will harass and threaten tourists.

Arrived at museum of the lowest point on earth in Jordan. Wished to visit Lot’s cave just up the hill.this man told us that the museum was free with our jordan pass, the cost for lot’s cave was 4JD — an attraction that is supposed to be free.when we asked whether we could walk up, he said it would take 45 minutes, but a car would cost 20JD return. The car drove us 150 metres and we walked up steps for 5 minutes. So we could have walked up from the bottom in 15 to 20 minutes. This man is a liar and gives Jordan the impression it is a country of criminals. Our driver spoke to him and he said he didn’t care.

Watch out for being ripped off. Despite having a Jordan pass we were still charged for entry. As you are only allowed a single visit i suspect it was scanned twice so the second scan would deny entry. We were also advised that there was transport from the visitor centre to the actual cave and this would be 8 JD's fir the car. When we agreed, they said that we would also have to pay again for entry another 4 JD's per person. On that we just left and didn't see the cave.

We visited this interesting site on New Year's Day, and it was a great chance to stretch the legs. It took about 10-15 minutes to climb the path and winding steps. It is worth it, but allow enough time. The site consists of the cave where the builders of the surrounding Byzantine Church and Monastery thought the Biblical prophet Lot sheltered with his daughters after the destruction of Sodom. There are some in situ mosaics and preserved walls, though signage is a bit limited, so it is good to read up first and see objects in the Museum of the Lowest Point on Earth below before you make the climb. You have to pay entry to the museum first in any case.

Take water in summer and be prepared to get a bit out of breath on the hike up. Stay on the path. Local food options are limited, and include the nearby "Safi Kitchen" - worth calling ahead. A few snacks can be found in the museum cafe.

Our plan was to walk to the cave from the car park at the museum but we never managed it because of a group of around 20 youngsters being very irritating and intimidating as soon as we left the car. Other cars turned around straight away, we also went back to the car and left without visiting the cave. Hope this gets sorted soon!!

Was told at the visitors centre to drive up a track to Lots Cave. The track was very bumpy, pot holes etc. We would have considered walking up but it was very hot. Lots Cave was worth taking a peek. It is fenced off so you cant go in to the site. But would recommend to go if your up that way.

Near to the Lowest Point On Earth Museum
The archaeological site is reached via a not yet finished road and when you get there you are aware that there is a need for more custodial care - the nice mosaic unfortunately had litter strew across it which somewhat spoiled the effect of a well cared for site

It was the story of Lot in Genesis that first made me laugh out loud and probably cement my deviation from 10 generations of deeply religious pedigree in my family to something else.

Laughing out loud at the Bible isn't for everyone so this is a kind of binary place - either you believe this is where Lot got drunk twice with his two daughters before un-thinkingly fathering the Moabites and the other ones...., or you don't, but still think it's pretty funny that other people do. If you're in the former camp - this might be a disappointment because you can't get into the cave, and the ruins around it are only for the very interested amateur.

On the other hand, if you love a good biblical yarn and you happen to be driving along this route by the Dead Sea, then it's worth a 20 minute stop - and I encourage you to read the Bible bit about the place as you visit. It's a scream. There's honestly not a lot else between this stop and Aqaba, so make the most of it.

There's also a museum underneath about the reality of the place and the type of people who lived there. It's got a rather spooky mummified Nabatean corpse in it which was a bit disarming to be honest, but there's some interesting tidbits for those inclined to read about the area.

Lot's cave is situated just above the museum at the lowest point on earth, you walk up at hill behind the museum then climb some steps to look through a fence at a doorway
