|This is the highest point in the Petra ruins and a fantastic spot to take in the vastness of this ancient city. The scramble up the stairs to reach here may be gruelling for some, but it is worth every drop of sweat. You are rewarded with distant views of many of the sites below and a perspective that few other visitors will experience that day, and you will likely have it all to yourselves. – Sarah|
