The region is about eleven kilometers long and four kilometers wide. There are several Palestinian towns located near in and around the valley, including Arrabah, Bir al-Basha, Burqin, Yabad, Qabatiya and Kufeirit.[1] There is one illegal Israeli settlement there; Mevo Dotan.

Emek Dothan is mentioned in the Bible as the site where Joseph was sold by his brothers.[2]
