Distance: 14 km
Altitude: From 1,360m above sea level to 1,210 m above sea level
From Shobak Castle: This easier hike starts from the old village of Sihan, which was inhabited by Shobaki locals up until the nineteenth century.
Only ruins of the old stone houses now stand witness to a once lively community in Sihan. A high viewpoint is easily reached, rewarding you with magnificent views of Shobak’s proposed protected area. Following the Al Hazeem
road you reach the Ras Al Faid area, where you spend your last night in Shobak before heading towards little Petra.
