Hidden amid the dramatic rock formations of Wadi Musa in Jordan, lies the ancient Nabataean city of Petra. Its magnificent facades were carved out of the red-hued rock more than 2,000 years ago; today it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and in 2007 was voted one of the New 7 Wonders... (See all)

    Get in through the north east entrance, right next to the small village, at 2 PM. 20-min walk to the start of the stairs to The Monastery... Petra will be for you only, no people back to The Treasury.

    the Monastery is not the only place worth visiting. for a less crowded, less strenuous experience w great views - try the High Place of Sacrifice instead!

    Absolutamente fantástico e imperdível. Reserve ao menos 2 dias de passeio, as distancias são longas e cansativas. Usa protetor solar e boné. Subida para o Monastery é puxada e leva 50 minutos.

    Замечательно место. Пешком до Эль Хазне(на фото) идти около 2.5 километров, можно доехать на повозке или гольфкаре но лучше пройти пешком, так как эта дорога и есть самое красивое в Петре

    The High Place of Sacrifice is very high. Worth the effort as the view is great. As is the hike up the 800+ steps to the Monastery. Its size will hold you with a superb view across towards Israel.

    Awesome awesome place. One tip is to not to hire a private guide or go all the way to the monastery if you are pressed on time. Instead do the 2 hiking trails in between the Treasury and the Theater.

    Take a pair of normal shoes as you'll need to walk a lot. Don't forget to put on pants which are not very precious as there are a lot of dusts :) p.s. The smell during the walk is shitty

    Petra a Világörökség része 2007 óta. Tippek: Szuvenírt ne itt vegyünk, mert drága. Hagyjuk ki a lovaskocsizást is, mert 1 km-ért 20-50 EUR-t kérnek, ráadásul így elsuhanunk a látványosságok mellett.
