What are the numbers and averages?
|Excitement and awe rise in equal measure as you pass through the shaded Siq and catch first sight of the iconic Petra 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|
|If you’ve written a description for The Treasury (Petra) you’d like to share with the community, send it to [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.|
|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 The Treasury Viewpoint. It was empty when we were there and afforded us great views of the The Amphitheatre along the way!|
|Should you wish to take an animal ride through the ruins and up to the famous Monastery, 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!).|
