Israel & the Palestinian Territories - Petra (Chapter)
This is the Petra chapter from Lonely Planet’s Israel guidebook.
Built partly in honour of the dead, the Petra necropolis retains much of its sense of hidden mystery thanks to its inaccessible location in the heart of a windblown landscape. Reached via the Siq, the path suddenly reaches sunlight in front of the Treasury – a spectacle that cannot fail to impress. Add to this the cheerfulness of the Bedouin people, and it’s easy to see what makes Pet-ra a must-visit in Jordan.
- treading the path of history by winding through the Siq leading to an ancient world
- catching the early morning sun slanting off the pillars of the Treasury, a sublime specta-cle
- preparing your own traditional Jordanian supper at Petra Kitchen
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: The Ancient City, Wadi Musa, Petra Walking Tour, and Siq al-Barid (Little Petra).
