Hidden Petra

A second day in Petra can reveal some of the site’s lesser known highlights, this can be adapted depending on how much you want to walk.

Behind the Nabataean Tent restaurant is Al Habis (the prison) that takes about an hour to reach, and the ruins of a small crusader castle, built by Baldwin I in 1116. The views are the main reason why you make the walk, looking over the fertile Wadi Siyagh.   You then walk along Wadi Farasa, via the Garden Tomb, Roman Soldier’s Tomb and Garden Triclinium – to the High Point of Sacrifice. 

You then descend to the Street of Facades, and then head up the Royal Tombs, passing the superb Urn Tomb, with its arched portico – seeing these tombs in more detail that are often passed over on the usual tour. Pass the three-story Palace Tomb to the high plateau for the best views back over the Treasury.

You then return back and pass back through the Treasury and Siq to the main entrance.
