“Walk Worth While”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This ancient monastery is a very difficult long walk but well worth it to experience the monastery and the over view of Petra words cannot describe how one feels

“Definitely worth the climb!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Many visitors to Petra don;t make it to the monastery - that's a travesty!! No trip to Petra is complete without a hike to the Monastery, and if you have time sit in the shade and watch the expression on the faces of other visitors as they round the corner and see it for the first time - WOW

“Magnificent to visit the Monastery”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

If you have gone so far and visit Petra, you have to make the effort to climb more than 900 uneven steps and visit the Monastery, you will enjoy the view and the Top of the World view. It takes at least one hour to go there but there is a Restaurant where you will be able to admire it and relax as much as you want.
