    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lebanese passport pay ONE dinar instead of 50 ... the ride downwards the treasury by horse is free , don't let them convince you of the Indiana jones trail .walk alone like I did .

    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
  • 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.

    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.
  • Ivan K.

    Plan to spend a night close by so you can really enjoy this breathtaling place. A climb to the monastery is a must, donkey or camel ride as well.

    If you need a good workout💪. This is it. Wear closed shoes, hat,sunscreen, long sleeves & don't forget your water. Start early in the morning, if your walking. Toilets are available through the route

    Be sure to go all the way in, and get to royal tombs, monastery, and remains of 3 Byzantine churches. Spend a whole day or two. Named one of 7 wonders of the modern world!
  • Isabelle C.
    Plan this trip when having lots of time!! There is a lot to see!! Dress lightly, as its very hot. Walk down to the treasury and the old city first and then take an animal (camel, horse or donkey).

    Sacrifice point (trail behind the Amphitheater) is completely worth it. Walk down other side to soldier's tomb & garden to trail head to monastery. LONG hike (10+mi). One of best days of my life.
  • Sunny 105.1

    It may be one of the 7 Wonders of the World, but to hundreds of Nabatean families Petra is still simply "home." Its children can help you to purchase souvenirs or give you a tour - in any language.
  • Javier H.
    Javier HernandezMarch 8, 2013
    Go to: High point of Sacrifice and the Monastery. Getting to the top of the latter won't take you more than 45min from the last cafeteria. Monastery to the visitors' centre: 1:30 at steady pace
  • Majd S.

    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
  • Nidal S.

    Don't forget carrying water and a hat, or you get burned! Climb up to the Al-Deir, very exhausting, but unforgettable!
  • Yian
    YianMay 12, 2012
    if you want hike all day (best way to get lost for 9 miles) pay the JD50, but if you want to just see Petra, go to Petra at night on mon/thurs nights (two hour candle walk for JD12.)

    Great place! Do not skip the rise to the monastery and the views to the mountains beyond monastery!!! Unpleasant local "street sellers" include children.

    Always bargain from 50% of what they offer. I paid 15JD donkey ride to the Monastery/High Place and camel rides are 20JD.

    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!

    Buy cold bottled water in a mini market outside of the site before you go in. The prices in the stands inside are 4 times the price.

    If you liked the Sacrifice and Monastery, go on the Al-Habis Fortress path too. This path starts near Petra Museum. Gorgeous views!

    Make sure you bring a windproof jacket along with you. Sandstorms do occur, and wind gusts get strong when funnelled through narrow canyons.

    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

    Don't pay too much and always bargain!! 15$ per person from the treasury to the entrance on any animal is reasonable.
