From Jerusalem to Bountiful: A Map Of Nephi's Journey

This map closely approximates Nephi's journey from Jerusalem through the wilderness to the Land Bountiful, where he and his family built the ship. Because of the detailed cardinal directions that Nephi gives us in his account, and also because of the discovery of the place Nahom (where Ishmael was buried), we can plot the journey quite precisely. By the time you complete your tour with Discover Nephi's Bountiful, more than 2100 miles will separate you from Jerusalem and you will have joined the small group of Latter-day Saints who have experienced both the beginning and the end of Nephi’s journey across the Arabian Peninsula.
