You will also encounter Nabatean ruins, including aqueducts and what are believed to have been presses for wine and olives. Take time to explore Little Petra, which archaeologists believe was like a suburb of Petra.

After breakfast, begin the trek to Petra - the “red rose city”. You will approach Petra along a pleasant trail down through Wadi Ghurab where sandstone mountains guard the entrance to the city. Few tourists enter Petra from this direction, so you will easily avoid the crowds. The ancient Nabataean route has been improved for safety, but the path along the natural rock terrace is still narrow. When you reach a hidden plateau, pause to appreciate the view down over Wadi Siyyagh. You will soon be able to see the structure known as “the Monastery” of Petra, carved into the face of the cliff. Refreshments are available from a Bedouin cafe here, then a set of ancient Nabataean steps lead you down into the city of Petra. There will be more opportunities to explore Petra tomorrow, so for now continue through Wadi Muthlim, if weather permits, and on to Wadi Musa to find your hotel for the night in Petra.
