Try to get a guide at the entrance (I was charged JD 10 for an hour guided tour). The mosaic in the place is colorful and interesting, but if you are not in shape, ascending to it may be plain dangerous !

We had dinner out here in the desert after a day at Petra. Wow! An incredible experience and my over-riding memory is of looking up and seeing a sky filled with more stars than I have ever seen before. Uplifting, incredible, unforgettable.
