The treasury is truly a bucket list destination. About 1/2 hour hike downhill from the entrance. Do not do in the Raina's flash floods can be dangerous. For the more adventurous extend the hike to the monastery , about 12 miles round trip. The hike from the Treasury is much moe hilly but worth the extra effort to get there.

Most visitors stop at the Treasury and walk back. You haven't seen anything yet! Make sure you keep going

It was a beautiful sight to come out of the rocks and see this in front of us. Seeing it in real life, you can imagine Indiana Jones coming out of it!

The view that emerges at the end of the canyon - very beautiful by itself - is incredible. If you are lucky to get some sunlight over the facade, the view is marvelous.

It is a beautiful monument and you get treated to seeing it as you finish with a long walk down the siq. You are not allowed to go inside it, can be seen only from outside.

This site will long live in my memory. It's what you see in the glossy brochures, but when you see it in real life, it's breathtaking.

The walk to the treasury is amazing. Getting to the treasury is downhill. The walk back could be challenging for some that are not in shape. There are donkey and carriage rides fit hire.

I loved it so much and my family enjoyed the trip, we took many photos. It worth the walk and need at least 2 days to see it all.
