Legendary capital of the Nabatean Empire, the rose-red city of Petra is a marvel too marvelous to rush through. You’ll want more than one day to visit this site.

The traditional entry to Petra is through the mile-long winding chasm called the Siq. This is a must-do walk; the extravagant colors of the sandstone walls, and many remains of the Nabatean shrines, water channels, wall carvings and some of the original paving stones make the Siq an archaeological wonder in itself—and then there is the heart-stopping moment when you suddenly reach the end of the canyon and face the towering Treasury, the memorable carved façade of Indiana Jones fame.

Ready for more? We still haven’t touched upon Siq al Barid (the Cold Canyon, also known as “Little Petra”), the city’s northern customs outpost, and Sabra, the southern customs point. Within the ancient city itself you can also visit two Crusader fortresses, al Mudhlim (the tunnel), Kubtha Mountain, Wadi Turkomanieh, al Madras, Wadi Siyagh, the Zantour villa, Wadi Maesrah…….well, you get the idea. It’s virtually impossible to run out of places to visit here. And the savvy traveler will want to leave time to just perch on a comfortable ledge and watch the mountains and monuments change color as the sun moves across the sky!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe’ll be happy to give you as much of Petra as you think you can handle. Our recommendation is that you plan to spend at least two or three full days inside the site. If you’re reasonably fit, our guides can lead you through a number of alternate entry and exit routes, once you’ve made that first never-to-be-forgotten trip down the Siq. Even in the highest of high seasons, Petra is large enough that you can escape the herds and go one-on-one with history.

While a week would be needed to visit all the highlights of the almost 40 square mile Petra basin, 2 full days allows enough time for the central monuments:  the dramatic “Treasury,” tombs, temples, theaters and waterworks.  Entry through the ¾ mile long mountain fissure “siq” at dusk either on foot or horseback makes a travel memory for a lifetime. So we suggest a minimum or 2 and preferably 3 nights in Petra.
