Simply Amazing...take your time walking through. If your lucky, there wont be a lot of people around...so you can really take in the space when it's quiet. There are a few benches along the route...take a moment and sit...pace yourself but mostly just take in the shear size of your surrounding.

The walk down the Siq is definitely awe inspiring. Nature has carved a spectacular path through the rock which man has added to. Best to go early when the crowds are at a minimum and you can find yourself alone as you amble through.

Formed by nature, used by man, the entrance to Petra, and also the best defense against The Romans, and the ravages of time.

Walk it, unless you can't. Riding in a cart or on the back of a donkey you will miss the intricacies of the carvings, the stories the stones have to tell. Walk it at a leisurely pace and ask your guide about anything you see.

I have seen a few stone cities before. But Petra's treasury is like nothing you can see anywhere else. We did a one day trip from Eilat, Israel. Be prepared to spend some time at the border when getting back. Crossing the border between Israel and Jordan is an experience itself. I highly recommend Petra. Bring your own lunch if... More

A lovely walk through this channel, best go early morning as lively and cool. On returning through here after midday, very hot as sun shines straight down into it.

I first saw an image of Petra when I was in my teens and then again in the Indiana Jones movie and it went to the top of my bucket list from that day! I finally managed to make it there almost 25 years later and it was worth the wait. An absolutely AMAZING place! The history of Petra literally... More

You have to go through this section any how. Check out the water duct on both sides carved into the side of the walls.
