Hard to believe that I went thru so much trouble crossing into Jordan from Eilat on foot. All the trouble and all the hassle was so worth it

Its the first site you see as you approach through the siq or main entrance to the ancient Nabatean city. You will get excited and want to see more, and you will be amazed.

Its the first main sight from the entrance of Petra (30mins.) I advise to start your day there before 8AM to discover more because its huge. The most annoying part is the constant donkey ride offers.

superpear, I cannot provide you with a trail map, but the trail uphill to the treasury viewpoint from above starts right after Palace tomb. It's called al-Khubtah rail and from experience of previous travelers it takes... More

Hello dear fellow travelers, I am planning to visit Petra in November. While I have found detailed info regarding access to the view of Treasury from above via the al-Khubtha trail starting from the royal tombs, I also came to know that there is another viewpoint accessible via the Madras trail which is more difficult and guide is recommended. My question is the following: if the second view point is easily accessible (well marked) from the High Place of Sacrifice and if it is doable without a guide. How long will it approximately take for a hike from the High place to the view of treasury from above and back? I am a 24 year old and would like to do it on my own to keep the cost low. Any information will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance. -Indra P.S- I am quite new to such posting activities, hence pardon me if anything is against the rules of the forum.

You can arrange camel rides locally. However I would strongly recommend against it. The sites worth seeing can only be reached by climbing stairs, which the camels can't do, so you'll be seeing the same area you would see by... More
