Unless you need the mobility support, walk down through the Siq. The unfolding views and changing colors accentuate the fact that this was a city that was easy to protect and hard to storm.

1.2 kms of natural wonder a tectonic fault, with a grand finale leading to the treasury. The sole entrance to a grand city once described as the wealthy city of Arabs.

This slot canyon is like a long cathedral of stone. Try to walk through at a time when it's quieter like very late day. It is probably the best part of Petra along with a hike up one of the mountains for the views.
