Don't forget carrying water and a hat, or you get burned! Climb up to the Al-Deir, very exhausting, but unforgettable!

Sacrifice point (trail behind the Amphitheater) is completely worth it. Walk down other side to soldier's tomb & garden to trail head to monastery. LONG hike (10+mi). One of best days of my life.

established around the 6th century BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans. On the BBC's list of the top 40 places to see before you die.

Definitely stay two days. Lookout point past the monastery and sacrifice point are worth the hike.

PETRA - JORDAN - World Heritage UNESCO Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean caravan-city, between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria

Go to: High point of Sacrifice and the Monastery. Getting to the top of the latter won't take you more than 45min from the last cafeteria. Monastery to the visitors' centre: 1:30 at steady pace

If you need a good workout💪. This is it. Wear closed shoes, hat,sunscreen, long sleeves & don't forget your water. Start early in the morning, if your walking. Toilets are available through the route

Jordan: Come celebrate a culinary legacy that spans millennia while contemplating the engineering feats of Petra—an ornate city carved into sheer red cliff faces 2,000 years ago.

Замечательно место. Пешком до Эль Хазне(на фото) идти около 2.5 километров, можно доехать на повозке или гольфкаре но лучше пройти пешком, так как эта дорога и есть самое красивое в Петре
