Bab As-Siq, Petra: 16 reviews and 35 photos
This is the canyon you?ll have to walk through before accessing the wonders of Petra. By itself this is already worth the travel.
Try to come early in the morning or late in the evening, the magical atmosphere reaches its maximum when you walk alone along this tortuous siq for slightly more than 1 km.
Even if at some place it is only a couple of meters wide, anybody (should even be possible with a wheelchair) should be able to go through. For some reasons the ground has been covered with concrete. Imho, this is quite unfortunate for the authenticity of the place but I guess this is the price to pay so that as many persons as possible can access the Treasure?
