$55 per person

Al Madras, a Petra “suburb” where caravans were held upon reaching the Nabatean capital, is an area with a number of decorated cave facades behind the Obelisk Tomb.  This special route into Petra climbs along the southern cliff of the Siq and involves several scrambles over steep sandstone escarpments.  At one point in this trek, you will arrive at a vantage point on the cliffside facing the Khazneh (Treasury) from high above, and be able to watch visitors walk out of the Siq below you.  The journey continues along the rugged mountains to the High Place of Sacrifice, where the Nabatean altars, an obelisk and foundations of the priest’s house are still visible, as well as a splendid panoramic view of the Petra city center below.  Descend through Wadi Farasa, passing the Lion Fountain and the Roman Soldier's Tomb.  Visit the recently excavated Nabatean Villa and the Great Temple as you return to the center of the ancient site.
