        Top Descriptions

        This ancient ‘rose city’ is one of the most satisfying historical sites our planet has to offer. Petra’s breadth is as stupendous as its structures; offering more than enough to occupy you for days. Iconic and towering, both or can make you feel appropriately small and are indeed majestic. However, it is the kilometres of trails winding around, and in many cases up, that will gratify any explorer or budding hiker. Perch on the or even the and it is easy to be consumed by the landscape and imagine what once was. Petra will tantalise most people’s inner historian and adventurer and is very much worthy of its World Heritage status. – Sarah

        Top Tips

        If it is at all possible, definitely give yourself at least two days here. Not only is this site huge, but why not appreciate these monumental structures more than once?!
        Aside from the archetypal buildings such as and , there are some fantastic little hikes leading to wonderful spots such as the and .
        Avoid the tour groups as best you can and arrive as early as possible!
        Even in spring the day time temperatures can soar here so carry plenty of water and provisions; especially if you are on a budget! Beer in particular is very overpriced.

                Top Descriptions

                Excitement and awe rise in equal measure as you pass through the shaded Siq and catch first sight of the iconic Treasury. The rose rock glowing in the morning light is as archetypal as you imagined and the lingering camels and donkeys simply add to the authenticity of the location. – Sarah

                        Top Descriptions

                        This may be the second most visited building in , ( being the first), but it is arguably the most marvellous. It is bigger than , and as it is importantly located atop a mountainous viewpoint, the grandeur is just that little bit more. Thanks to its distance from the entrance, this site can actually be viewed in relative serenity at points in the day. The walk here alone can be a highlight for many, but to then be rewarded with Ad -Deir makes the whole thing a truly unforgettable experience. – Sarah

                        Top Tips

                        The walk to the Monastery is said to be 10km from the very beginning of the entrance, and does indeed include 850 steps at the end. This is quite enjoyable for a seasoned hiker (and by seasoned, we mean one used to the heat!), but if you are not then factor in the time it will take you to reach this wondrous site (or rent a donkey/camel) and remember to appreciate the scenery as you go.
                        There is an overpriced café and some basic toilet facilities here, so you can rest a while and watch the herders (both shepherds and tour guides) pass you by.
                        Don’t miss some excellent viewpoints adjacent to this site. They may be some of the best views Jordan has to offer. Simply continue on the well trodden path that leads up past the café and to the right until the paths culminate at precipitious and dramatic views.

                                Top Tips

                                The best view of The Amphitheatre is probably from above. Try the path for some panoramic pictures!
                                The walk between and is quite far. Perhaps make the amphitheatre a place to stop for a few minutes to rest before pressing on – especially in the summer heat!
                                If you’re looking for a bathroom around here, they are just before you reach the amphitheatre and on the opposite side of the path.

                                        The Directions

                                        Follow the path past the row of Royal tombs, with Palace tomb being the last. A few meters past this you should come to a staircase on your right that climbs up the mountain. Follow this staircase, which will turn into a trail towards the top. It is one well-trodden trail all the way to the viewpoint and shouldn’t take you longer than 45 minutes.

                                        Top Tips

                                        There is a tiny shack at the viewpoint which offers soft drinks on ice (when the owner is there) and a chance to chill at the top.
                                        The walk to and from the viewpoint will likely add a good couple of hours onto your visit, so plan accordingly.
                                        There are some excellent views of below you on your right before reaching the viewpoint.
                                        The gentleman who worked at the shack did offer us the chance to stay there for a few hours, where his family would provide dinner, and we could watch the Petra Night show for free. Though we couldn’t accept, it is something you may want to consider and prepare for.

                                                The Directions

                                                Turn Left just after you pass Qasr Al-Bint, from this point on the viewpoint, on top of Umm Al-Biyara, is basically always on your right. You have to walk over the hill and down a dirt path a little way, passing a rock out crop on your right that is occupied by locals. Keep walking with the mountain on your right. You will pass a small dwelling, which will likely have cattle outside of it. Continue for another 20 or so meters. At some point on your right you will come to a sign post for Umm Al-Biyara which points to stairs leading up to the viewpoint. There are some parts before this which look like they might be a trail. Do not climb them. You want to wait until you reach the stairs. It is a steep climb to the top. At the top you can walk across the plateau and come to the Petra viewpoint.

                                                This is the highest point in the 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

                                                Top Tips

                                                Take heed of the directions on this post, and perhaps do a little more research. This really is a viewpoint you won’t want to miss.
                                                There are a few rocks to shade under and enjoy the viewpoint on the plateau, so perhaps consider making that your picnic spot.
                                                This is probably a bit much to squeeze into a one-day visit. If you can’t afford two or three days in the park, be prepared for a 3-hour round trip just to complete this viewpoint hike.
