    Quatro Relax Hotel was excellent room, sleep, food, service, and only 5min drive from the city of Petra.

    You do need a good level of physical fitness for the trek up the steps here! And listen out for the donkeys as you need to get out of their way. But the effort was well worth it. It isn’t as busy as the Treasury probably because of the uphill sweaty knee trembling hike involved!!
    There are some good little ‘shops’ you walk through and get a bit of shade. They are quite insistent on the way down but do haggle and see what negotiation on price you can get.
    If you come to Petra it is definitely worth making the effort if you are able to get here!
    A few facts- The Monastery is 59m wide and 45m high so bigger than the Treasury. It was built in the 3rd century BCE as a Nabatean tomb. My guidebook says there are more than 800 steps- I didn’t count as was concentrating on breathing!!
    Enjoy.

    We hiked here today at about 7am. The lighting was perfect and not alot of people. If you want to go to the view point, go right away before the guides start hassling you.

    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.

    The drive from shibok castle is gorgeous. Yes, this is little but still impressive. And after walking over 14 miles the day before, little is not bad.

    We hiked this on day 2 in Petra. It is a beautiful view from the top. We hiked the back way down. I highly recommend this trail. Do it in the morning and you will have the view all to yourself.

    I admire the royal tombs in Petra - carved huge buildings in the rocks, resistant to weather and wind. The beauty of the stone is even better seen inside the royal tomb. Surprising is the perfect acoustics inside.

    Obelisk Tomb is located at the beginning of the road to the ancient city of the Nabataeans Petra. You pass it on the way to the Siq Pass. The name is derived from the shape of the obelisks above the door of the tomb carved into the rocks.

    Street of Facades is so named because of the carved premises of the ancient Nabataeans, who created Petra. I admire their struggle to create a city among the rocks and for it to have been inhabited for centuries!

    This is a must visit site in Petra, don’t miss it, take some time to walk around and explore what is left of this fascinating temple.

    It was a great evening and perfect way to experience the local cuisine. The chef picked a lot of recipes and it seemed daunting seeing them all on the white board. We made them all. The chef was very patient and fun to work with. It was a very small class so we got a lot of tips (e.g. chopping faster safely). Only two suggestions: (1) make sure you are hungry so you can fully enjoy all the amazing food you prepare; (2) when making reservations is to ask how many people will be in the class since they can hold up to 40 which means less hands on time for each person.

    Fine example of non cave buildings around the Petra complex. Built in the post Nabataean era and worth a slight detour from the main road.

    The combination of colours in the rock facade makes this a very nice place to visit. It's a short way up from the main road.

    The most important Temple to Petra was dedicated to Dushara (Qasr al-Bint). Built in the first half of the 1st Century AD, there is a flight of 26 marble steps on the ascent to the Temple. It is unbelievably massive in size, and is located at the end of the Colonnade Street as you approach the trail to the Monastery.

    A former Ronan Governor, Sextus Florentius wanted to be buried in Petra. He got his wish and us now interred along the line of Royal Tombs high above the main Wadi opposite to the amphitheatre.
    The tombs are beautifully intricate and the differing colours if the sandstone and the affect of the shining sun give them a wonderful glow.
    Look for the massive Jordan flag fluttering on the high rock to the tight as you round the treasury and straighten into the Outer Siq. The tombs are above that and a little walk beyond the flag.
