    • Leave your Petra (Wadi Musa) hotel or camp in the afternoon, and travel northward by air-conditioned 4x4. 
    • After soaking in magnificent panoramas over the main Petra site from a viewpoint, drive on to Al Wu'ayra, a crumbled Crusader fort built by King Baldwin I during the 1100s. 
    • Then, pass through a Bedouin village as you continue into Little Petra, an age-old valley and area dotted with rock-cut buildings hewn by the ancient Nabataeans. 
    • Head off-road to see a Neolithic village dating from between 7,200 and 6,500 BC, one of the world’s oldest discovered settlements. 
    • Then, continue to Beir Al-Aris, a well-preserved Nabataean cistern. Composed of rock chambers and staircases, the cistern served as a water well and is still used by locals for irrigation. 
    • Next, head through the Siq Al-Barid, the narrow canyon that opens to many of Little Petra’s monuments. 
    • See the carved porticos and caves used as caravan stations and dining spots by long-ago traders, and view the 1st-century ceiling frescoes in one of the caverns.
