The Siq is the main entrance of the Petra and is about 1.5 Kms long. The walk through the siq is often reffered to as "walk through the magical corridor". The corridor along with natural sandstone on both sides is a treat to the eye.
Petra attracts millions of viewers with the beautiful pictures of siq. One does attest to the beauty of the place after visiting it. The shadow of the walk through the siq is a welcome relief also for the visitors hiking in the midday sun. And...More

It is the main entrance leading to the ancient city of Petra, approximately 1200m long and a width of 3 to 12m, and height up to about 80m; most of the rock is natural.

My partner and I have done some canyoning previously but this was still such a fun trail. We ended up doing it in about 1.5hrs unguided. The water is super warm. There are plenty of ropes to help you and you cannot get lost. We...More
As you weave through the Siq, it well and truly whets your appetite for seeing the amazing facade and spectacle of The Treasury.....in fact it was quite surreal seeing it for the first time.....but when we went back the next day.....just as impressive but not...More
This is a narrow slot canyon, as narrow as 10 ft, with walls as high as 600 ft that serves as a “secret” entrance to the spectacular ruins of Petra. Originally formed by water running through the rocks. Just amazing.
Not at the ticket office, once you get down just beyond it. The carriages are very close to the start of the track and they will take you to the treasury, you can also go further right to the steps to the monastery.

You won't need to be an experienced horse rider because the locals will either walk the horse or ride alongside you. Be careful to very clearly negotiate a price for the ride AND for the tip before you start because some horse/camel/donkeycarriage operators can become intimidating at the end of your ride if they believe the tip should be bigger. It is important to be very clear about where you want to go before you get started so you aren't taken or led off the track to 'see another site'. Although some of the operators can be persistent, they will usually leave you alone if you are polite but firm. Also, the operators will be keen for you to buy a ride to the Monastery (the highest site at the very end of the track), but they often refuse to let you ride down from this point because it is more difficult for the animals to bring you back down again.
