Up To The Monastery In Petra
Whereas most individuals know Petra as the traditional civilization constructed by the Nabateans over 2,000 years in the past, it’s truly a haven for anybody who likes difficult treks.
You’ll have many route choices, though I strongly advocate mountain climbing to the long-lasting Monastery and persevering with on to the “Finest Viewpoint” (you’ll see indicators telling you the place to go).
The ascent takes you up lots of of sandstone steps, passing donkeys and Bedouins, till you attain the highest for an aerial view of the Monastery.
Not solely that, however there’s a cave on the prime for nice silhouette photographs, in addition to views of the encircling canyons, valleys and mountains.

Wadi Mujib options each moist and dry mountain climbing trails, though for the complete journey I like to recommend opting to undergo the gorge. You’ll start the hike by trekking up a particularly steep uphill climb that will provide you with aerial views of the valley and its many crags and rugged peaks.
As soon as on the prime, you’ll start descending down into the gorge, the place you’ll start the true journey.
Traverse over slippery rocks with water reaching as much as your thighs, stomach your method over boulders, repel down gushing waterfalls, spider your method down aerial stone openings, zip down rock slides, and physique float down the speeding river till you get to sunlight once more.
