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.
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)
