“The Siq”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

About a 2 kilometer walk in. The colours of the cliffs are very striking. It becomes quite narrow. Look for the irrigation channels dug into the cliffs.

“A wonderful approach to the Treasury.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Much longer than I had imagined. Wonderful colours in the rocks and amazing rock formations. The first view of the Treasury is magical.

“The corridor to unveil the Treasure”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Full of mystery at night and a great way until the Treasure appears. Don't rush and enjoy every step watching carefully to the walls and their colours.

Petra without the Siq is like water without a glass. The cool walk through the siq is an enjoyable experience.
