  Jerash old high street !
by freya_heaven

Get away from the crowds in Petra & walk up to the high sacrifice,
Also take the time to walk to the monastry rather than staying in the centre where it can be very busy. You can climb up the side of the monastry, on to the very top of it, but looking down isnt for those with vertigo!

Give a donation to the donkey sanctuary as you walk in to Petra. (or out!)

Visit a locals cafe, have a game of backgammon.

I am sure Jarash has its busy times, but there was hardly anyone else there when we visited, the same for Karak Castle

The photo is of Jerash ruins in the north of the country
