This is an important archaeological site in Jordan, and the capital of the ancient Nabatean kingdom. The name Petra means rock in Greek. Petra is located in a narrow valley, east of the Arava Valley, about 80 kilometres south of the Dead Sea. "Treasure" (the monument you see in the picture) is reached after crossing a gorge between a set of monumental rocks called The Siq, which is at the end of the hike. As you can see from the photo, it was an amazing journey.
