First, you will walk thru the back end from Little Petra (Beida) – Siq Albarid to the farming village going up the mountains for an exceptional breath-taking view of the Monastery, then descend to the Byzantine Church and Qasr el Bint. Proceed to walk thru Wadi Farasa to see the Lion Fountain, Garden Triclinium, and the Roman Soldiers Tomb. You will enjoy the different stone colors and caves. Witness other monuments such as the 3,000-seater Theater and the Royal Tombs.

As you explore, listen as your guide describes how the Nabateans sculpted the buildings, and learn how they mastered the harsh desert conditions to make their lives here.
