This is the most photographed site at Petra but I personally found the Monastery to be much more awe inspiring. The sheer size and detail of the carvings in the rock face are amazing. Do go either early in the morning or towards closing time...More

This is the what most of the people see when they visit Petra. But this is not the end of Petra. There are Tombs and Monastery. In fact Monastery looks far impressive however it looks to have been downplayed on religious grounds

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.
