Petra, despite being visited in crowds every day, it is so vast that you can easily find many places to be all alone and simply enjoy stunning views. Just a little motivation 🙂.
On the first day, after 35 km of walking about and watching various sights and recesses of Petra, we found that it was not enough time or covered distance for us to truly get to know the place. In the evening quite accidentally we entered the route leading to the High Place of Sacrifice, which turned out to be too long to leave before dark. There were no tourists anymore, just a few Bedouins. Tiredness, piercing silence and the dogs howling between the mountains made us a little scared. But the dogs were the worst. During the day, quietly running between the tourists, in the evening they created packs and we barely lost them. Maybe they were just guarding the donkeys that had been locked overnight but anyway you never know.
The next day we covered another several kilometers 🙂. Luckily during the day I met many friendly animals, a small cheerful donkey, photogenic camels and lots of cats 🙂 🙂. And Petra’s colors are simply stunningly beautiful, enjoy 🙂
