Basic Info:

From the main site in Petra we head out of the touristy parts of the city to the south through the sandstone hills. All around are traces of the Nabataeans with rock carvings and steps. Bedouins still live in the area. We reach the snake monument from where the fit and adventurous can take a side excursion to climb Jabal Harun.

Transportation:

Regular minibuses run between Wadi Musa and Amman (from Amman’s south bus station) and Ma’an, as well as a daily (but inconsistent) bus to Wadi Rum. One JETT bus a day also runs from Amman to Wadi Musa (6:30am) and back (late afternoon)

Accommodations:

Wadi Musa has countless hotels. You can wild camp in the area of the Snake Monument (it can’t hurt to ask a local if this is OK, and for the best place to pitch tents)

  1. Seven Wonders Camp
  2. Ammarin Camp
  3. Fig Tree Villa
Things to See:
All of Petra‘s attractions – this stage is left short, on the assumption that people will spend time taking detours around the rest of Petra
Amenities:
Water, snacks, restaurants, bathrooms, donkey rides at Petra; all city amenities in Wadi Musa (including ATMs). Water not far from the Snake Monument, in Petra, and people live in the area
