The Siq Pass is a beautiful creation of nature, created by earthquakes millions of years ago. The line of the passage is formed by the splitting of stones colored by various minerals. The passage leads to the ancient city of Petra, which has been hidden among the rocks for centuries. Now the road through Siq is very well formed, an ancient aqueduct has been carved on the rocks.The pass is about 1.5 km long, guarded by police. The way out is in front of Al-Khazneh.

Amazing time tunnel, this is the feeling I got passing through this main entrance to reach Al Khazneh of the magnificent Nabataean Petra, the walk is thrilling and never experienced before.

Slot canyons are unique and beautiful! Siq is no exception. Walk through this massive canyon as the entrance to the Treasury appears

We've walked back and forth enough times now to sometimes wish it wasn't quite so long. Because it takes at least a half hour to get in and out (from entrance to treasury), leaving Petra for a nap or lunch, etc isn't always worth it. It doesn't cease to be beautiful however.
We experienced walking out as the sun was setting, and it sure gets dark quickly. Luckily we had flashlights along. It definitely felt safe, just eerie and adventurous. It's usually an interesting and fun walk - we've never taken the horses or golf carts but those are options.

I've always wanted to visit Petra and journey down the Siq. Whilst Petra itself met my expectations, I found the Siq amazing and stunning in it's beauty. Definitely recommended.

But you can get a "Golf" buggy from the entrance, right through the Siq to the Treasury. Well worth it, especially for the return journey.

You need to walk through the Siq in order to visit the main parts of Petra. It’s fascinating walking through the various gorges and rock formations seeing all the various shapes and colours. Photos don’t do it justice.

My adult son & I had a marvelous adventure while traveling to the valley-setting of ancient Petra, through the 1.2 km narrow slot-canyon approach known as The Siq. The surrounding walls of rose-colored, striated-stone, soaring straight up to heights as high as 80 meters in places, obliterate the sky from view nearly the entire length. This natural passageway offered secure protection to Petra's early residents. Finally, upon exiting the Siq, the visitor will gasp with wonder at the intricately carved, and immense Treasury, proudly standing before you, nearly 40 meters high. While walking the Siq, note the time-worn, cart ruts visible in spots along the pathway where the stone-paved street remains. Notice evidence of the Nabataean, early water-management system along the journey. Be cautious of the rapidly approaching, horse-drawn carriages which shuttle tourists into Petra for a fee. The colorful, blanket-wrapped carts make for an exotic photo. The anticipation of what is to come with your initial glimpse of the Treasury & beyond, heightens as you progress through this beautiful & unusual geological marvel.

No way you can miss the Siq while visiting Petra, since it's basically the only way towards the complex. Walking through the gorge and been rewarded with the view over the Treasury is stunning.
