Walk along the classic route of the ancient pink city of Petra, with a landscape that crawls from the beginning to any traveler, for a lot of information that it takes before on this place. Then we immediately find that the photograph is far behind, next to what the human eye can perceive.

First of all, in the itinerary we will make a short while of open way, where we will see among others, the peculiar tomb of the Obelisk. The landscape will make a radical change when we enter the famous canyon (Al Siq) an impressive gorge, which windingly will lead us to the strategic enclave of the Treasure (Al-Khazneh) that when discovering it, surely do not leave indifferent to no one. A wonder

But continuing along the way, we soon realize that the archaeological city of Petra is much more and immediately we will find a succession of buildings cut to the rock, such as the Amphitheater or the Tombs of the Kings, which we find incredible to sculpt, that we will make you think, from what was capable of making man of antiquity and his intelligence.

The route is very interesting, apart from the Nabatean vestiges, along the way, we will see important remains of other civilizations, such as the Roman and the Byzantine. You are overwhelmed when you see the huge surface of the set and tell you that eighty percent of the findings are still underground.

We decided to ascend the eight hundred steps leading up to a beautiful path, in the majestic Monastery (Ad-Deir), of spectacular beauty, it could even be superior to the famous Treasure of Petra. We will move on a little more, intoxicated by the landscape, up to a nearby hill that is highly recommended, an excellent viewpoint with a challenging slope where we can see a fabulous panorama.

On the way back, we will dedicate ourselves to doing many "climbs and downs" on the bands of the road, to visit the interiors of the buildings, admire the cuts on the stone and its color changes with sunlight, get into the intricate Holes where the Bedouins did not live long ago and put them in their terraces, to admire the different views of this wonderful group.

We will get tired at the start point, but also very compensated for what we have seen. This is definitely a very distracted excursion, with an adventure movie scene, where, without a doubt, we will have a continuous challenge to the senses.
