Jebel Haroun Hike
The Jebel Haroun Hike is a strenuous six-hour return trek from Qasr Al Bint in Petra. Jebel Haroun (1350m) is thought to be the biblical Mt Hor – the burial place of Moses’ brother Aaron. There is a shrine at the summit dating from the 14th century, and it became a place of pilgrimage. The views are now the main draw. You also go via Snake Monument, an eroded stone pillar capped with a serpentine form appears to keep guard over the periphery of the Ancient City of Petra.
