I had a vision impaired husband so we tailored our walking accordingly but at the beginning of travelling down the siq you could take a horse drawn 'carriage' a little bumpy but great. the first glimpse of the Treasury was a dream come true. Then we were approached by a young man who offered a donkey ride round the site.... More

We spent 2 full days at Petra. The night we arrived at Petra, we bought the Petra light evening show. The light show itself is just so so and could be better if the lighting and sound systems are improved. However, we enjoyed the experience to walk from the entry gate to the treasury following the candles light path. We... More

Gazing upon the Treasury for the first time is a moment akin to the initial sighting of the Giza pyramids, Angkor Wat, or the Taj Mahal. So famous from photographs and celebrated in travel brochures, the Treasury exceeds expectations. Perhaps that's because of its fame, enigma, size, color -- or that it first appears as a glimpse through a narrow... More

A breath-taking view of the treasury after a long walk through the Siq. It was a sunny December and the walk, though long was not difficult. This was especially interest to think that it was built between the 3rd century BC and the 1st Century AD.

Thebest way you can see it is to not look direct, our guide really surprised us on his way by taking out attention on an elephant curfed on the wall... then he said "Hey look here" then we were like shocked first time to see it .. its not like pictures or shows you have to see it.

Worth stopping before you enter just to enjoy "chink" view of Treasury through the rock. If you want a photo without lots of tourists/horses/donkeys etc - I found the site was almost empty by 4pm.

this is not the best part of Petra, here is more than this. It's fun to take the carts, try to keep the horses with less work during hot weather, too harsh on them, walk instead. The monastery is after this, prepare your self for a long hike up, it is so much fun! Merchants will say one dollar, one... More

Ali was a fabulous, English speaking and highly knowledgeable tour guide for our family visiting from India. Coming in, we were just aware of the Petra treasury but he showed us the entire valley expertly and scaled heights that we weren't even aware existed. He had exceptional photography skills and was happy to take dozens of pictures of our family... More
