Petra is magnificent. 5 stars for the views. Be sure to walk to the Treasury and continue on to the Monastery. Went in late June-it's hot! Pack plenty of water. Terrain isn't too hard, it's just a lot of steps to the Monastery. The walk to the Treasury is evenly paved with a gradual incline.

It is a bit of a walk and the 800 steps will leave you a little tired, but it is worth the trek all the way to the Monastery from the entrance. You will see the Treasury, the theater. and a temple along the way. Bring water, wear comfortable but durable shoes, and enjoy the area. Don't forget to climb up past the Monastery to get an evening higher view of the area.

Done in 1h30, start early like 7am, it's a must to see!

Woweeee. This was a butt kicker. We took our sweet time looking at everything else and then decided last minute to hike to the monastery at the end of the trail. HOT. Don't do this the way we did it. Get there very early and head straight to the monastery. You won't regret it!
