It would be quite stupid to just climb to the top, have a look to the Monastery, have a drink and then immediately go back down to the valley!
If you walk a few 100 meters more, you would find several viewpoints with one of the most stunning landscapes of the site.

Address: Wadi ad-Deir
Directions: The Monastery is quite a walk from the main area of Petra, follow the path at the opposite end of the Market Place.
