Liked: The unique circuitous geological formation and how the original settlers (the Nabateans) made use of it.

Disliked: None really...

I recommend being up early and walking through here - apart from avoiding the heat, you have the place to yourself and it's a much better experience..

We rose in a fairly leisurely fashion wandered outside to the site at around 07.30 and ended up being the third people to exit the Siq. On this point, later in the day there is a crocodile of tour groups with all their attendant noise but getting there early meant that we had the walk to ourselves and it was by far the most atmospheric part of the site never knowing around which corner the treasury would appear. Don't count on it though, there are so many people you need to be lucky.

My husband and I had the pleasure of walking the Siq three times during our day-and-a-half trip to Petra. Our first take on it was during the Petra By Night program. This walk is beautiful and mysterious when lit in the pitch darkness--you really feel as if you're walking into a different world. Next, we came in early at around 7am and got to see the Siq lit up with the while light right after dawn when everything looks fresh and open. Last, we took this walk at subset on our way out of Petra when the real red and purple colors start to show up on the rocks in the later afternoon light. At any time of day, a truly enchanting experience. Additionally, because the whole path is flat and open (unlike many other parts of Petra that require a more strenuous hike) any age and physical ability can enjoy.
