Petra - weather

I will be visiting Petra next week. Can anyone advise me what the weather is like around that time?

Do we need warm clothing?

Also, is it advisable to walk both ways or should we take the horse or horse carriage(heard its very bumpy)? Thanks.

Amman, Jordan

1. Re: Petra - weather

Hi romm - well this week the weather is very nice indeed its a very pleasant 22 - 24oC, warm sunny days

- the sun gets going around 6.30am and it stays nice

until the sun set at about 4.40pm.

Check with weatherunderground website they give all the forecasts and histories of areas. However, PETRA doesn't show - just check Amman weather its similar.

Regarding the horse etc. No need in this climate

its very favourable - not hot and not cold. See how you go, you can change your mind on the way in or the way out as there will be animal vendors all along the route.

Great weather for sight seeing. Have a great time.
