Perfect beginning to find the Treasury of Petra

I really enjoyed this path to the amazing Petra, the way you feel so small in the middle of these enormous rocks, is just perfect to just walk and walk to get there!

Most people enjoy the Treasury (al-Khazna) and the Monastery (al-Dayr) most about Petra, but my favorite part was the Siq. It was shady, long, winding, and full of natural beauty. The culture of the Siq was enhanced by horse carriages and horse riders thundering through at intervals. The whole length of the Siq also features what remains of the guttered... More

Quite fascinating walking through the rocks and having time to consider the pageantry and colour that have walked the same way

I am surprised they Sig is separated from the review of the Treasury since you get to the Treasury via the Siq. It is a magnificent sight! It is a wonderful build up to the Treasury. The sheer magnitude and preservation of the place will amaze you. A true wonder!! So worth the trip.

The walk is amazing with so much to look at from the beautiful colors of the stone to the carvings that line the walk.

Fabulous, get there early and beat the crowds..even though its a sunny day take a jumper as it can get cold. Worth mulling over and not rushing through it but just admiring the majesty of the place.

I would recommend that you start early to beat the crowds, this will enable you to walk through the Siq and enjoy it in all its beauty. Horse cart rides are offered at the entrance but I would advise that if you can, to walk through the Siq at your own pace as this will allow you to take it... More

The walk through the Siq was much longer than I had anticipated (but I love a good walk). There were many things to be learned along the way, such as how water was carried through the Siq in man-carved troughs. Every step of the way is beautiful. I would also agree that one should start as early as possible to... More

We started at 7:30am from the entrance, and when we reached the Treasury, we almost had it to ourselves. The walk thru the narrow slot in the mountain is awe inspiring.
