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 Tips

Arriving early in the morning will seriously increase your chances of having this (almost) to yourself, and certainly makes it possible to take photos with no one else in them!
For perhaps the best view of The Treasury, head to the . It was empty when we were there and afforded us great views of the along the way!
Should you wish to take an animal ride through the ruins and up to the famous , then this is a popular place to pick up your ride. There are also horse-drawn carriages here at the end of the day to take you back to the visitor’s centre car park if you are too exhausted to walk (which many people seem to be!).

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.
