Petra

Day 4

Set out to Al Beidha, better known as Little Petra this morning, which was inhabited by the Nabataean and has many tombs, water containers and channels. Start the adventure from Little Petra, through the ‘back door’ to the magnificent Petra, a truly incredible and iconic walk across the deserts and mountains of Jordan. You need to be reasonably fit for some climbs. The spectacular views of the ever-expanding horizon as you climb, your real reward comes as you approach the top. At first, you can glimpse a strange, but obviously man-made carving poking above the skyline; as you walk further it slowly reveals itself to be the Monastery Tomb, towering above you. (Around 4-hour hike from Little Petra to the Monastery) Continue to explore monuments of different Nabetan/ roman and Christian periods await you – Tombs, Temples, Houses and Churches.

 

In the late afternoon, enjoy a local cuisine workshop working alongside local women under the supervision of a chef. Dinner included.

After lunch, experience a gentle 2 to 3-hour water walk along the narrow stream. Trekking in the wadi is like trekking in a subtropical rain forest. Water seeps from every crevice while an abundance of plants and palm trees grows vicariously from the canyon walls displaying all different hues of green. (No specialised equipment is necessary)

 

Arrive at the Dead Sea in the late afternoon, the lowest point on earth (1,373 ft below sea level) and the largest ‘natural spa’ in the world. Pamper yourself with its healing and revitalizing water.
