Little Petra can be reached from Petra but it is a long hike. I decided to hire a car to take me to the Little Petra entrance nearer to Wadi Musa. It is genuinely like a smaller Petra, Sig and all. The most impressive part is that some of the original painting on the tomb interiors still exist here. They... More

While you are here, make sure you visit the excavated neolthic site from 10,000 years ago. Britain was buried under ice at this time. Remember, this is where modern humans began their control of the soil and learned to become what we are today!

If you have a spare hour, this is definitely worth visiting. It is smaller than Petra and not as well preserved, but you can see the same features, with the added bonus of being able to go into the tombs and caves. There are some large cisterns and you can see the drainage channels carved from the rock in order... More

Let's be clear from the start, it is nowhere as impressive as "big" Petra, so keep your expectations lower and use it just as a side visit... However Little Petra has some advantages: the entrance is free, there are far less tourists, far less touts and less people trying to sell you everything. As a result it is quiet, you... More

Being build as one of the very few paths into the mountain range, Little Petra used to be the equivalent of an outpost, where guests were housed and trading was done. The fact that it was very quiet here and we were hence able to explore without restraint (ascend steep carved stairs, climb onto buildings), made this detour well worth... More

Went here the day before visiting Petra. Great side trip as we didn't have many other tourists around and could explore at our leisure. For me, some of the smaller sites like these are that much more enjoyable because of the relative obscurity and being able to just take pause and soak it all in.

This is definitely a place to visit too along with Petra, it was a surprise and less walking which is great! The rock formations are also beautiful! Well worth the side trip!

Much less known than impressive Petra, but as stunning. Best time to go is in the evening/late afternoon, the day before you go to the famous site. Late afternoon early evening it is quiet and you can feel the centuries fade away while you are walking around. No entrance fee, just Bedouins offering you tea (worth accepting their friendly offer,... More
