Everything about your visit to Petra will be absolutely amazing. Be sure to ride a camel to the end of Petra and then start a slow walk back to the entrance. This will allow you to see all it has to offer and will certainly...More

Try, make a plan... But GO! Petra is spectacular and definately with the trip. Use desert Eco tours. They were brilliant, professional and well organized. Ask for Mahmoud Hamadeen as your tour guide. He knows the area, the history and the interesting stories.

We entered this section with our guide Eid from the monastery. It was beautifully carved. I hope they continue the excavation work in this section. 75% of petra is still underground. Its amazing to see how the nabatean civilization existed at that time.

This space is beautiful, and if you're here late in the afternoon as they're starting to close up the site, a little spooky as most of the tourists have gone back. You can really hear the echoes then and understand why the Nabataeans believed their...More

The monuments are truly stunning. However, the entrance fees for foreigners are outrageously high (50 JD for 1 day). Also, the place is swarming with literally thousands of tourists, souvenir sellers & bedouins offering expensive rides on animals.There are also several cafes & restaurants which...More

Soon after you make the right turn at the Treasury, you will come to the Street of Facades, a row of many tombs built by the Nabateans. Some you can enter, others have been buried by centuries of flash flood debris. The street goes on...More

I state interactive because you can actually enter the caves and large rooms that have been carved into the rocks. Unlike the Treasury, that you can't enter, the different facades are individual tombs or buildings that you can enter. Great photo opportunities.

At dawn on horseback no people are there yet and the color is not washed out as it is during the heat of the day.

While not much to see on the inside (it's basically empty cavern), it is really amazing from the outside. There are so many more than I expected, and the detail from some of the carvings is just out of this world. There are bedouins selling...More

You can not visit all of Petra in an hour or even two. On foot it takes 30 mins minimum without stopping just to get to the impressive Treasury and if you want to carry on to this street of facades then you need to...More
