  little petra



$40 per person

Begin your tour with a visit to Siq al Barid (“Little Petra”), the northern customs outpost for the Nabatean capital.  A small portion of Nabatean fresco remains in one of the many carved and decorated cave facades inside this narrow canyon.  A walk of 1 km brings you to the site of Baidha, a pre-pottery Neolithic site which is one of the earliest known agricultural settlements.  Continue cross-country through the Baidha wilderness area, past small planted fields and orchards, to enter the colorful canyon known as Wadi Meruan.  The trip through Wadi Meruan involves several scrambles up sandstone escarpments, and at one point the path runs along a narrow ledge above a 400-meter drop (difficult for those bothered by vertigo).  Continue through Wadi Meruan to Petra’s “back door” for a climb to ad-Deir (the Monastery), Petra’s largest carved façade.  From the plateau to the west of the façade you command a fine view over the ancient caravan routes of Wadi Araba and the Negev.  Descend ad-Deir by the rock-carved steps to return to the Petra city center.
