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)

    Sabah erkenden orda olursaniz bos Petranin tadini cikartirsiniz. Kimseler yokken resim cekmek daha guzel. Sacrifice trail den monastery yoluna sorarak cikabilirsiniz. Daha uzun ama cok guzel

    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.

    Alejandro Hdez · July 28
  • Clara W.

    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!

  • Agneishca S.

    Must see!!!!

  • Brian P.

    It's the most expensive entrance fee I've ever paid, but well worth it! There is ancient energy flowing in this place...

  • Ozlem K.

    A must for Jordan visitors; it would be nice to make the entrance fee cheaper

    Ozlem K · June 20
  • Paul D.

    It's a huge place. Set aside at least 2 days rather than a quick visit

    Beautiful place

  • Klas-Herman L.

    Do not miss the high places!

  • David G.

    No acepten nada al primer precio. Transporte en mula,camello o caballo están dispuestos a bajar hasta la mitad o más del primer precio. Lo mismo con los recuerdos y otros artículos

  • Ricardo O.

    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.

  • Alif R.

    Все очень красиво и нужно много времени, чтобы обойти все. Мы брали повозки туда-обратно и не рассчитали со временем, так что все посмотреть не удалось.

    Arthur Khisamiev · December 15, 2014
  • David A.

    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

    David Atabekyan · December 5, 2014

    Breathtaking! Literally!

    Vanessa · December 3, 2014
  • Ant B.

    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.

    Start early, head back to your hotel around three... Go for a swim, grab a quick dinner and come back for night at Petra!

    You have to see this wonder before you die

    Worth visiting if you are ever in Jordan .. Best time to go is either in autumn or spring ..lots of walking so don't forget to wear your running shoes

    Majd Sourani · July 30, 2014
  • Lisa B.

    Start early. Take hat and lots of water.

    Lisa Bender · July 7, 2014
  • Yizhou J.

    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.

    Best to go around 8:30am to njoy without getting burnt.only snacks available so better take lunch along or fruits since it's a Gud 4-5 hr tour.toilets available so keep sipping water.

    Aastha Chopra · March 31, 2014

    Tragam um chapéu/boné (até mesmo uma sombrinha) para se proteger do sol, protetor solar, lanches e muita água... É maravilhoso!

    Carol A. · March 24, 2014
  • Susana H.

    Impressive site, with all the monuments and tombs carved and polished on the montains. The monastery is worth a visit (850 steps up), it's facade is bigger than the Treasue and the view is amazing

    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

    Este es una prueba, es la pequeña Petra

    Stunning scenery. People are generally friendly. Prepare yourself for a LOT of walking, sun exposure and horse dung smell. Don't stop at The Treasury, walk on for more beautiful things.
