(See my other review for High Place of Sacrifice for more detail, didn't' know this hike had it's own separate heading)
Everyone wants to see the Monastery, and rightly so, but truth be told, you get a better scope of Petra by hiking Wadi Farasa to the High Place. Stunning views of an ancient city that go on for miles. Hike the Monastery and then do this hike. It'll make for a long, exhausting day, but if you've only got one day, it will be well worth the effort.
