We got there early and were the only visitors. A chance to look around and imagine, just go and enjoy it.

We visited with a guide who explained the history and it is definitely worth fitting in to the itinerary before seeing the larger site and still very impressive and breath-taking.

Oh my God! The night was incredible, I've never seen so many stars!! And the candle lit mountain was just fascinating, absolutely took my breath away, and I entered a new peaceful set of mind. They also served us dinner at the camp which was spectacular! I really enjoy myself and the company I was with..

It is a bit of a climb up through the crevice and narrow in parts but the view at the end is worth the effort. Would recommend reasonable fitness level due to steep natural steps up.

Out tour guide took us there as an appetizer to Petra and it is smart to go before the "real thing". You get a view of what you will be seeing and there weren't many tourists. And of course, the good thing is it is free.

Clearly, little Petra doesn't quite measure up after you've seen Petra. However, it is worth visiting to complete your insight into the life of the Nabatian people. Little Petra was the decoy so the foreigners would think Petra was insignificant and not worth pursuing as a conquest target. I did enjoy seeing the restuarants, business meeting and entertainment establishments in... More

Beautiful and raw...awesome to shoot pictures of and meet some locals living there. A smaller version of the area around the Siq in Petra.

We visited Littel Petra in late afternoon, the day before we visited Petra. It was not a disappointment - the site is much quieter than Petra, and is more 'personal'. The local traders and guides are very friendly. The highlight for me was climbing the stairs / canyon at the end of the site and being able to see the... More

A nice place to pass by before reaching Petra to put you in the mood of the Treasury that you will see there. Small things but already relevant.

It was close to sunset as we decided to take the 15 km trip from Petra to "Little Petra" (Siq al-Berid) and it was sooo worth it! It's a magic place to be! As we arrived, a red carpet led to a place in the desert in front of a sandstone monument: prepared for a party with candles in the... More
