Getting up there it's really a great idea! You get nice views from the top! I'm not sure if it's hard or not to get there because it wasn't hard for me to get up there and keep in mind I'm over weight and out...More

The High place of sacrifice is a spot where the Nabateans used to make sacrifices to their God - Dushara. There is a hike to get to the top and it is not for the unfit and it is always hot in Petra so be...More

Probably the most interesting thing about the High Place of Sacrifice is the stunning views from the very top of that mountain.

My favourite place in Petra - not so crowded. The walk up is not so bad - we needed one hour from our hotel (near the entrance) and I am quite slow. It was easier then the climb to monastery. And it is worth the...More

My favorite place in Petra. You can overlook the area, be by yourself and next to the Gods (no matter what religion you belong to). Take your time to sit down, breathe and let the magic of Petra sneak into your heart.

One of the highlights of the trail. This place gives you a good view over Petra. The trail cost you at least 1,5 hour. Don't forget to also bring a visit to the place where you can see the treasury from above.

The High Place of Sacrifice is in Petra. If you have not done that then do the whole hike starting at the Basin Restaurant then descending into the amphitheater near the Treasury. There is hardly anyone on the route and... More
