An incredible experience. Go ready to do battle with the vendors, however. I have experienced them all over the world but no where as persistent as here.

However, if you are just as merciless as they are, you can get amazing bargains. Wish I could go back and do some of my Christmas shopping there : )

Be aware that the short ride in or out on a horse or donkey is included with your admission; only a small tip is expected. If you can, it's much better to walk.

If you can't the bumpy carriage for about $30 US was considered very worth the cost to those in our group that could get there no other way.

I loved the camels but didn't ride one. Disliked having a 5 year old sent out to barter with me. Overall, beautiful and a place like nowhere else. But exhausting in every way.

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.

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

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.
