- Petra We are in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, exploring the ancient city of Petra. Over 2,600 years old, Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Petra is the legacy of the Nabateaeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in south Jordan more than 2,600 years ago, dominating the trade routes of ancient Arabia. With our guide, Mohammad Mofal, we walk through the outer Siq, a steep sided gorge. Its early in the morning, we are on our way to the Treasury.
The Ancient Pink City of the Desert, Petra is one of the oldest cities in the world. We are exploring Petra with our Jordanian guide using every means of transportation available, horse, donkey and dromedary for transportation through the narrow canyons to arrive at the ancient city.
