If you go up the route by the theatre, go back the other way down. The alternative route has tombs which are more worth seeing.

High place of Sacrifice is a must visit place, where one can can have panoramic view of the city of Petra from the top of a mountain. Take ur time to hike above with a guide, as trails can be vague when u r reaching the top.

A beautiful view after a way up the mountain. Definitely woth it, a track with beautiful views around the mountain will lead you to the center of petra. Make sure you have water before going.

Top tips, sun cream, lots of cold drinks, hats, wear gym kit or wickable sports kit and trainers, footy kids are the best thing for kids to wear... More
