Not only has nature created this amazing corridor, the Nabataeans created some gems along the route! Hurry past and you'll miss them (sorry, folks who use carriages, they only go at one speed, and that is *fast*). There are religious niches, a water conduit, and...More

We arrived at 6am, when the doors open, so we could be alone (almost) in the SIq. Once you get there, it's about a 1 km hike to the Treasury. The Siq is a marvelous geological feature and there are some interesting things to see...More

The Siq was one of my favorite parts of Petra - the colors dancing in the sun and watching them change as the day passed. However, if you go too early, you'll miss half the beauty (and not beat many more travelers anyway).

A must do if you are in Jordan. It’s quite a long walk so perhaps difficult for physically challenged people. Beautiful rock formations and a fitting entrance for the beauty that you discover on arrival at the treasury!

I will never forget the sounds of horse hoofs in the Siq as we twisted and turned and finally saw the Treasury at dawn

Great to walk thru here. Be prepared to walk at least 6 miles total -- downhill going in but up hill coming back out. Have comfortable shoes on.

Its only when you walk through the Siq that you realise how tall the canyon is, the hydro engineering skills of the Nabateans will wow you. How they managed to do all this that many years ago is unbelievable. the walk till Al-Khazneh though at...More

Great walk, stunning scenery, nature has done some stunning work here. Civilizations have left their own intricate mark as well. Having Shu'aib as our guide, we discovered much more in the Siq than meets the eye. Some tips: Watch your step, there are usually horse...More

The Siq is the main pathway through the gorge to the treasury but it has its own fascinations and wonderful carvings. A water course runs alongside the walls for their plumbing and when you think this was pre-Roman it leaves you with some awe. When...More
