Having seen many pictures of this edifice and having watched various travel journals, I knew I had to visit Petra. Descending the SIQ I could sense my anticipation and excitement were mounting as we neared the end of the canyon and then WOW--there it was...More

Petra is stunning. I had a very weird feeling when i was standing in front of the Treasury, something i experienced before at the pyramids of Cairo and the Great Wall of China. You just stand there and can't take your eyes off this beautiful,...More

The Treasury is undoubtedly a site to behold. About a 30 minute walk from the entrance to Petra, be sure to wear comfortable shoes & clothes that can withstand the heat. Go early!!! The site opens at 6:30 & you must go then to avoid...More

There is no wonder why the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade picked this venue for filming. The Treasury is "over the top" in beauty. The opportunity for photography or just standing in amazement while viewing this attraction is unique and rivaled by only...More

It is a tomb of at least two kings and misnamed the treasury. It stands at the end of the siq. Various styles of architecture are included.

Hi we are going in May to Petra for a few days and do have tours booked. I am really interested in doing a short camel ride at the treasury. Did you arrange the ride prior to going to Petra? If so, whom do you contact. Or did you just arrange it that day. Any information you can provide would be helpful thanks

You can arrange camel rides locally. However I would strongly recommend against it. The sites worth seeing can only be reached by climbing stairs, which the camels can't do, so you'll be seeing the same area you would see by... More

As I have not heard of the Indiana Jones Trail Ride, I am sorry I cannot answer that question either. If it is just round the site then probably not strong skills as it is an easy site but further afield, not sure level.
I will be at Petra next month, and only have a limited amount of time. Does anyone know about how long the hike up the Al-Khubtha trail takes? Not going exceptionally fast or slow, just a normal pace. I've heard everything from 45 minutes to 2 hours... Anything a little more concrete?
