It is a small, plain river not more than 30 feet across. Wooden steps are built down into the water on both banks for tourists and pilgrims. It is at the end of a short road. There are fences and clear warnings of mines on both sides of the road. Plenty of parking for tour buses. There are bathrooms and a gift shop. A few military were seen, but they seemed bored. We saw tourists on the Jordan side looking back at us, just as we were looking across at them.
