When people say Jordan, they say Petra,
the 2000 year old Nabatean village hidden in the Petra mountains. The Nabateans carved their tombs, temples and facades out of the rose-red sandstone and constructed their efficient water collecting systems. And Petra became a prosperous capital city on the silk route.
Walk through the Siq and be mesmerised by the impressive Treasury, the most famous of the temples. Or take the natural stairs on the Al Khubta trail to end up high on the mountain so see the Treasury from above!
And don’t forget to take your time to go off the beaten track to discover the other hidden beauties of this ancient village. There are many walking trails, like the hike starting in Little Petra, via the back road, to have your first view at the Monastery.
