This is the entrance to Petra. I kept feeling like I was on the set of an Indiana Jones movie. We went late in the day and only had time to walk to the treasury. The colors of the Siq's walls were beautiful. It is a bit of a walk, but don't and carriages are available for hire. Don't miss... More

This is a natural wonder in addition to it being an archeological treasure. You will learn so much about the trade routes used in 300BCE.

The Siq is the astonishing and only way to get to ancient Petra. It actually is a huge crack in the mountains surroundig Petra. It is told that, because of an earthquake, the crack closed and the water protection system collapsed, so Petra was trapped and completely flooded, causing the end of Petra's civilisation. Hundreds of years later, another earthquake... More

You pretty much have to walk through the Siq to get to eh Treasury. Make sure to go during low season or after 4pm to avoid the tour buses. It can be pretty narrow at times and crowds just ruins the experience and majesty of wandering around these narrow canyon ways.

The Siq is amazing and again will leave you spellbound. The Siq is located over almost whole of the route to the treasury. The ticket is common and it will be recommended to take the 2 day pass to explore all the places in Petra.

The colors of the rocks around you are terrific! The Nabateans buildings are amazing and bring you to ask to yourself how they could did that, BUT the Siq brings you to ask to yourself which hand, which creator, which architect did that? Simply MARVELLOUS!

If you're at Petra of course you will hike through the Siq--you simply have to in order to reach The Treasury. Of course, if you are not mobile, you can take a horse to the entrance and then a chariot to The Treasury. But the real fun comes from walking through the towering walls without being in a hurry--fascinating structures... More

The walk along the Siq down to the Treasury is almost as stunning as the destination. The whole experience was amazing but take care of charging chariots racing up and down the Siq with passengers being shaken to the core and paying money for the privilege!
