My husband and I visited Little Petra in the afternoon and found it to be relatively empty. It was a very nice visit because we didn't have to deal with crowds. I definitely recommend a visit to Little Petra. The rock formations are beautiful.

It is a small scale than Petra but still very interesting to see. There are lots of carving along the path. It is also easier to walk along the path and see some of the stome chambers.

The other end of Petra, entrance to the Monastery side, a small number of shops and stalls, car parking, entrance to Little Petra (use your Jordan pass). We got the jeep to the start of the hike (5JD each) (otherwise a 2 mile hike), then it was a long hard hike up and down lots of uneven steps, fine if you're young and fit, not so good if you are middle aged and out of shape (like me!) We didn't make it all the way to the Monastery, but saw some great views.

We visited Little Petra, also known as Siq al-Barid early in the morning and enjoyed strolling through this is Nabataean site. As in Petra the buildings are carved into the walls of the sandstone canyons. It is free entrance - you need 30-60 minutes to complete your visit. In the middle of suq there is a small biclinium which can be reach by climbing around 20-30 steps. It has some rare surviving Nabataean paintings on its rear wall, and so it is called the Painted Room. Opposite the room on the north is a large cistern, part of the water system built by the original inhabitants. Well worth a climb.

...it only takes about thirty minutes to stroll through "Little Petra" and recommend adding it to your itinerary.

Place not that crowded as Petra itself, but maybve it's because I was there quite early. After seeing Petra, Little Petra does not make a huge impression. Good trekking shoes are necessary, as steep and slippery rocks are to be climbed to reach the view point. Some moments might even be dangerous. Buth when in Petra and wanting to squeeze as much as possible - step to Little Petra by.

Not much to see here after seeing Big Petra. Few vendors, merchandise not good, mostly closed. Not worth a separate trip.

Great area, free entry. Much much easier walking than Petra. Smaller area but still lots to see. Remarkable that this is all stone.

I met Abdulla at little Petra. He was an awesome guide. He showed me through little Petra, we had tea with a Beduine friend and he was my guide the next day to the monastery. If you want to hire him :
