Beautiful, mesmerizing place! We took a walk here at sunrise with our Bedouin guide... there was absolutely no one around and the place is much more open to explore than Petra. It's Petra minus the crowds and formality.

I visited Al-Beidha as part of a package vacation through Jordan which included running the Petra Desert Marathon. Our group was adventure marathoners from all over the world. Our visit to Little Petra came the evening of the day after the marathon. We arrived after sunset to a red carpet lined with luminaria which led us all the way to... More

It's the small Petra not to big as Petra but ver pretty and well conserved. A good place to visit. Not all the people know about it.

Wandered about little Petra at the end of a long day, the walk through the narrow gorge is very pretty, like Petra, buildings are carved into the sandstone. I loved the excavated houses of the Neolithic village. A nice end to an unforgettable day.

Although we've spent nearly 20 years visiting Petra, we had never before been to Little Petra. We were missing out! This site is really only accessible to those with their own transportation, but it gives a great sense of what Petra was like our first visit all those years ago. It also boasts the only Nabatean fresco remaining. I loved... More

It was such a unique site and so interesting. The trek with Jordan Inspirational Tours made the experience insightful and fun

Would definitely recommend seeing it, possibly before Petra itself as it lacks the wow factor Petra has in spades.

Having seen the magnificence of where the Nabateans were buried it was so interesting to see where their commerce was conducted. Has to be seen to understand the culture.

If you're going to Petra you should definitely try to go here as well, as it is quite impressive in itself, and gives a different perspective on the Nabatean civilisation. it is also a quieter place to visit, as well as having no admission charge, and no rip-off donkey rides. But unless you just fancy the tricky climb don't bother... More

Little Petra has a tiny entrance and once inside it has a lot of the charm of Petra, without the vendors and people. There is a staircase marked "The best view in the world" with an arrow pointing up stairs. Once going up the stairs, they become quite difficult for older folks to manage as they are uneven and slanted,... More
