Take a walk through a kilometre long chasm known by the Siq, at the end of which, you will be rewarded by the breathtaking sight of Petra's most famous monument, the Treasury.
Various walks and climbs reveal literally hundreds of buildings, tombs, baths, funerary halls, temples, arched gateways, collonaded streets and haunting rock drawings, as well as a 3000 seat open-air amphitheatre circa. If time permits, see the high place of sacrifice, a gigantic first-century monastery and a modern archaeological museum.
