It covers some of the most stunning and diverse landscapes that Jordan has to offer! You'll be straddling the edge of the Great Rift Valley starting from Dana Nature Reserve, down to Wadi Feynan at 300 meters and gradually climbs to 1100 meters at the high view points above Petra-an extremely remote route through one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Jordan uncovering some of the most spectacular nature-sceneries of this wonderful country! On the trek will be spent camping Bedouin-style. Leading through a backtrail to the magnificent Monastery marks your arrival at the unparalleled site of Petra, one of the UNESCO's world heritage sites and one of the New 7 Wonders! This great adventure also includes the chance to experience the Dead Sea-the world's lowest spot and second saltiest lake!

This excellent trek has been recently recognized by the National Geographic as one of the World's Best Hikes! It is rapidly gaining a reputation as the ‘Inca Trail of the Middle East'. But guess what? You are highly unlikely to come across any tourist on the route until you reach Petra! Even your day into Petra has been designed away from the tourists' bulks; coming through scenic backtrails and side Siqs without missing any of the classical experiences.
Could you think of a better way to experience Petra?!
