Day 4 Petra

Enjoy a full buffet breakfast at your hotel.

Dedicate a full day to the exploration of Petra, often referred to as the "pink city" and the capital of the Nabateans. This ancient city, ingeniously carved into the rose-red sandstone cliffs, invites your imagination to roam freely. It's a place of mystique and grandeur, a timeless homage to a civilization now lost to time.

Petra held a pivotal role as the hub of the Nabatean spice routes, connecting regions from the Persian Gulf, Western Arabia, and the Red Sea. Over two millennia ago, it emerged as the heart of the Nabatean Empire. The city's significance extended to the point where one of its rulers, Aretas IV, earned a mention in the Bible. Their craftsmanship can be witnessed through the carved theaters, temples, tombs, monasteries, houses, and roads that grace the rose-red sandstone cliffs. Recognizing its significance, UNESCO has rightfully designated Petra as a World Heritage Site.

Your journey into Petra commences by passing through the Siq, a narrow and profound gorge. At its culmination, a breathtaking sight awaits you: the iconic al-Khazneh, known as the Treasury. As you explore further, the ancient city unravels before you. Countless stone-carved structures, shaped by the hands of time into resplendent multi-hued walls, await your discovery. Petra, with its rich history, architectural marvels, and vivid colors, promises an unforgettable journey into a world shaped by the hands of ancient artisans and the passage of time.

Today's excursion takes us to Little Petra, a once-inhabited Nabatean site adorned with numerous tombs, water reservoirs, and intricate channels. A narrow trail leads to the inner section known as Siq Al Bared. This area, an extension of Petra itself, earned the name of "Little Petra" due to its scaled-down yet reminiscent features and its role as a continuation of the Petra experience.

Depart for Wadi Rum, traversing the captivating Lawrence of Arabia desert. Your exploration takes place in unique 4x4 vehicles led by Bedouin guides. This journey offers a glimpse into the lunar-like expanse of Wadi Rum's landscape. Marvel at the incredible creations of nature, shaped by rocks and sands. Highlights include Wadi Rum village, Lawrence spring, Alamele inscriptions, 7 pillars, and enchanting sand dunes.
