"A journey - from the gate house I" Bab As-Siq Tip by leffe3

Bab As-Siq, Petra: 16 reviews and 35 photos

There is one main entrance to the site, found on the outskirts of the modern town of Wadi Musa. There are many other entrance points spread in the mountains, but they're not so easy to find, and even if found, the route to Petra is not so easy (why do you think it remained lost for so long?LOL).

A long dusty track takes from the gate house into the mountains that hide the city.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
