The road to Duma is bordered by luscious olive groves on each side, a sure sign of this village’s agricultural importance. Set against a hill with a mosque proudly protruding at the top, Duma is a quiet, relaxed and unassuming place. However, the stunning views of Jordan, the valley, springs and caves are certainly worth making a noise about. The town was the subject of a Livelihood Enhancement Project from the seventh European Commission. The residents still largely rely on irrigated crops, fruit orchards, olive groves and livestock for food.
