The walk through the Siq - either on foot, horse or camel - we tried all three (definitely worthwhile) is a must "do" in Petra to see the amazing sites of the Treasury and Monastery, all carved out of the mountain...
The expected highlight of any visit to Petra and the best time to view the Siq and Treasury is in the evening when the area is desolate, quiet and the colours serene.

Al-Beidha - Little Petra Petra - Wadi Musa
#10 of 18 Sights & Landmarks in Ma'an Governorate
... hardly any other visitors and the atmosphere was fabulous - a narrow gorge, tombs and rooms carved from the rock, adventurous places to climb if children come along, steep steps leading to a magnificent view.
About 30 minutes by vehicle from The Treasury and the World Heritage Site Of Petra, “Little Petra” has far fewer tourists, yet still has awe inspiring history and ruins.

Byzantine Church Petra - Wadi Musa
#12 of 18 Sights & Landmarks in Ma'an Governorate
Our guide was brilliant and took us off the beaten track away from the crowds to show us this site and so for us it made it a part of the main trail that we were on for 4-5 hours.
It might be easy to overlook coming to the church given all the other sites of Petra but the church is well worth a visit.
