I am slightly apprehensive about this trail but my sister and will follow your trail next month, July 2023. It will be very hot but that's the only time we can visit. If you have any tips, please let me know. We hope to take this trail in the afternoon after 3.30pm. Hopefully we can get a 4WD . We are… read more
Dear Meltem, July and August are the hottest months in Jordan. I would suggest to start as early as possible but the 4WD shuttle that you can take from Little Petra starts around 7.30 or 8 am. Also not clear at what time the last time will run. Maybe around 3 pm. The times can change day by day here… read more

Petra is one of the New World seven wonders and with that I finally checked off my 6th wonder and one to go.
Hot temperatures, 43… read more
Thanks for updating me on your experiences! It sounds great! I'm happy it all worked out for you with your back road hike! And that you enjoyed your Jordan journey that much!
