The global image of Petra and the first thing that comes to mind is the Treasury ( Al Khaznah). Absolutely stunning and one of the seven wonders of the world ! A must for any world traveller's checklist !

About a 2 mile walk from the entrance to theTreasury. I'd recommend renting a carriage but be sure your bladder is empty because the roads are very rough and you're going to take a beating.

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
