After breakfast it’s time to start your hike. Enter Petra via ‘The Back Door’ avoiding most of the tourists. Good tracks go pleasantly down Wadi Ghurab amidst sandstone mountains guarding the approaches to Petra. This way follows a Nabataean route out of the valley and skirts round the final mountain on a natural rock terrace which has been ‘improved’ for the safety of walkers. Even so, it still narrows slightly before reaching a hidden plateau high above the impressive chasm of Wadi Siyyagh. Just beyond, carved into the cliff face, ‘The Monastery’ suddenly comes into view, where there is a Bedouin café for refreshments if you would like. Nabataean steps then lead down into ancient Petra.

You will enter through the “Siq,” a 1km long narrow gorge which is flanked either side by 80m high cliffs! Notice the dazzling colors and formations of the rocks. The world heritage site is massive, and contains hundreds of elaborated rock-cut tombs, a treasury, Roman-style theaters, temples, sacrificial altars and colonnaded streets. Later on this day we will transfer you to Wadi Rum. Enjoy the wilderness adventure of a 4×4 jeep tour of Wadi Rum, following in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, climbing sand dunes and rock bridges.

Day 8:"Wadi Rum - Dead Sea Visit & Lunch - Amman"
After breakfast, we will proceed to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Once we arrive, we can enjoy floating in the Dead Sea, one of the world’s great natural experiences. Floating is the right word for it; with an eye stingily high salt content it is virtually impossible to swim in the viscous waters of a sea that is 415m below ‘sea level’. After floating, trying out the “magical” Dead Sea mud and soaking up some sun, we will head back to the capital. Overnight at a hotel in Amman.
