It's a must see. History all over. We just loved every corner we walked on. Mashaallah. In the olden days people mist have been much stronger than today to build with primitive weapons such a beauty

This crevice is one of the highlights of any tour of Petra. I loved how it curved around, as though it had been carved by the wind. The variety of colors is also beautiful. Make sure to get as many pictures as you can here, as it is arguably more scenic than other places in Petra.

The siq itself should be one of the seven wonders to see how perfected it is ,, how it's been carved and trenched to cope with the nature of the place ,, small canals walking all along the siq to transfer water to city of petra. It's so majestic .. less than 30 minutes of walking , you need to... More

After you pay your entrance fee, you will be free to walk to the various Petra sites within the park. To do so, you must walk through the Siq. It takes about 25 minutes but is very enjoyable and shaded. Towards the end, the Treasury will emerge through the crack, just like all the famous photographs.

Siq in Petra is an amazing place, a narrow path threw high mountain walls. But some things brings down the experience. The entrance fee of 50-90 JD is way too high, at least after paying that fee, touristS should be aloud to walk and experience the place in peace. But no.. Loud rude hawkers and small children trying to sell... More

It almost feels like someone designed the passage to lead towards the treasury. It's like a perfect preview before the Treasury slowly unfolds. The high walls help with shading. There is some cool things to see in of itself so take time to enjoy and don't just rush towards the Treasury.

Amazing colors in the rocks, the Siq is a wonder in and of itself. You can feel the history as you walk the :"road" that you know thousands if not millions have walked over the years.

This was like a drum roll in advance of the main event of the Treasury. Cool and shaded in parts but hugely impressive in terms of scale and magnificence. Contains some interesting historical features in its own right. All part of the overall experience.

The Siq, is a 3/4 mile long, narrow gorge that in places is less than 10 feet wide and winds through the rocks to the next major attraction, the Treasury Building. Unlike slot canyons, which are entirely shaped by water, the Siq is a natural geological fault, split apart by tectonic forces. Once formed it was later worn smooth at... More
