petra carriage

by dentonmule

Is there a way to book a carriage to Petra in advance?

Re: petra carriage

by cachaseiro

There are dozens of them and you don´t need to book in advance and i do´n´t think it´s possible either, but they will come to you as soon as you get near them at the entrance.

Wow! You are organised!

Rest assured, there are plenty of carriages to trot you into Petra. Is there a reason why you'd want to avoid the interesting walk?

If you can walk it, then why not sign up for the evening walk by candlelight? You'll hear stories, local music, watch traditional dancing and have a large buffet meal! Perhaps this may be available to you if you have a disability ---there is a vehicle gate on the far side but its for authorized vehicles onl.

Travel Tips for Petra

Petra general background

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Petra is a historic and archaeological city famous with its rock cut architecture. It dates back to the 6th century BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans. Now it is a symbol of Jordan as well as its most visited tourism attraction.

It lies on the slope of Mount Hor in a basin among the mountains which form the eastern flank of Arabah (Wadi Araba), the large valley running from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba.

Petra is an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985.

The site remained unknown to the Western world until 1812, when it was introduced by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.

Petra was chosen by the BBC as one of "the 40 places you have to see before you die".

You can watch my high resolution photo of Petra on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 30° 18' 44.22" N 35° 27' 56.10" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Petra landscape 1.

Restrooms and Restaurants within Petra Park

by stappm

Restrooms: If you are like me you always know where they are, where ever you go.

On the way to the Treasury there are restrooms at the Visitors Center as well as a small shop, about half way, where you can get water, tea, snacks and various tourist trat. There are also more of the same kind of shops and restrooms at the Treasury and beyond. Once you pass the Treasury on the main path you will see the Theater, the Royal Tombs, Colannade Street, etc. which will lead you to the main restaurant. The Restaurant is affiliated with most of the 5 star Hotels in the area, you can charge things to your room (Crown Plaza, Movenpick, Marriott) regardless they offer an excellent buffet and assorted beverages for approx. $10. The museum is there also with of course, more restrooms.

Petra, a place to enjoy!

by zumodemango

My favorite thing about Petra is, of course, the Siq, and when you see the Tresoury. I think every moment i was there i enjoyed and i know i will go back one day. My fondest memory is the hospitality of the people in Petra, in Jordan in general. The silent moments in the early morning and the different changes of the stones with the light.

Petra Adventure

by nepalgoods

Even though Petra is very save and people everywhere, it can be quite adventerous to explore the stony environment. Deep and narrow gorges and some steep pathes lead into the red mountains of Petra.

The Rock Formations of Petra

by Paul2001

One of the more interesting aspects of visiting Petra, besides the magnificent tombs, are the wonderful shapes and colours of the rock formations inside of the tombs themselves. This actually more so in some of the smaller tombs. The photo that you see here was taken in an otherwise lesser tomb but the colours of the rock walls are awesome. Do not run through Petra to quickly so that you miss nature at its most vibrant.
