The best way to experience Siq is to reach there as early as possible (about 8 AM) when there are no crowds. Walking through the Siq is a beautiful experience. The way the treasury opens up (comes in view) on the other side is marvelous!...More

An Amazing passage through the terrain. The shape and colour of the rocks is quite something. Definitely better and cheaper to go on foot.

Difficult to credit nature can make something so beautiful. And the aqua ducts made by the Nabateans are a work of art.

This is the walk you take to get down to the ruins. It's steep in places so wear good shoes and bring water. Some very good pictures to be had on the way.

You're spoiled for choice at Petra but make sure you find and admire this splendid site. Get to Petra early to avoid the thousands of visitors.

What a way to enter a world heritage site! Winding 2 kms through narrow pathways through overhanging sheer rock faces. Not so great at night though. Beware the horse carriages which race through the passageways with little respect for the walkers.

We should go through Siq to reach Al Khazna, so we walked around 1200 meters after we took our tickets. The only thing which was so bad is the RUBBISH of the animals.

This is a wonderful walk between walls of colorful sandstone. Watch out for the galloping horse carriages. Bring your camera!

Not at the ticket office, once you get down just beyond it. The carriages are very close to the start of the track and they will take you to the treasury, you can also go further right to the steps to the monastery.

You won't need to be an experienced horse rider because the locals will either walk the horse or ride alongside you. Be careful to very clearly negotiate a price for the ride AND for the tip before you start because some... More
