“The ants go marching”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

It's amazing to see the height of the Siq, makes you feel like an ant going through the narrow canyon. Seeing the treasury come into view at the end is also an amazing sight!

“Wonder of the world”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

About .5 km in length, easy walking on smooth dirt or paving stones. The sandstone formations on either side were gorgeous, and the tombs and carvings were incredible

“Walk down the Siq”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

The walk into Petra is beautiful. Be sure to take the time to look up and all around you. I beleive it is about 1 mile. It can be hot. There are many ancient things built into the Siq along the way including a water system, alcoves for lamps and stairs. The colors of the rocks are magnificent. It is dusty and many horses and carriages pass you taking people who prefer not to walk. Wear comfortable walking shoes. I chose to wear shoes and socks which I am glad I did as it is dirty from all the horses and camels. There is not food, water or restrooms in the Siq but is available when you arrive at Petra.

“Awesome Entrance”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

The walk in is one of the best bits of Petra, The canyon is amazingly beautiful and with teh anticipation of the Treasury at the other end it is well worth the walk.
