So much to see whilst visiting Petra, but the Royal Tombs are accessible and worth seeing whilst there.

Very impressive wall of tombs carved typically in the stone. It requires very easy walk up to the terrace from which there is a quite spectacular view over Petra plateau. Some tombs are accessible and visitors can venture inside.

This is another key site within Petra. It is well worth the slight detour. It is a comfortable walk and there are many sites to see along the way. Enjoy.

These tombs right off the main path that leads to the "monastery" . A climb of about 150 steps to the tombs. Another great view from the top and some beautiful architecture. Well worth the climb

This is not the highlight of the day by any means but once there and walking around it's worth crossing over and walking up to have a closer look. Nothing like as difficult to access as the Monastery if walking is a problem.
