When people think about Petra, the image of a rose-colored rock-cut temple tucked away in the mountains of the desert of Jordan often comes to mind but what they may not know is that Petra is so much more than the Treasury. Petra is an archaeological city that covers vast space of a barren desert. The city consists of a Roman theater, tombs carved on a side of a mountain, temples cut from a cliff face and in order to see all the beautiful architecture the place has to offer, we must go on foot and start hiking.
Due to the size of the ancient city, it can be quite overwhelming for newcomers to choose which route to explore first. Petra has several trails where hikers and outdoor lovers can explore on foot and within this guide, I will recommend you a combination of trails that will allow you to see the most the rose city has to offer, all in one full epic hiking day.
