209/365 - May 31st 2018
Our day started with a quick tour of the main sights in Petra. Our guide was great, really informative and quite funny too! We then went off on our own, continuing the main route all the way up to the Monastery. The endless steps on the way up certainly make the views more rewarding, and you certainly have to marvel at how it was built thousands of years ago.
A really friendly local gave us some advice on some other trails that are sort of unofficial....it was a bit of a grey area but plenty of other people walk them. One of them is right near the Treasury and goes all the way to the top of the canyon.
After spending pretty much the whole day walking (of course we didn't ride the donkeys or camels), we were beat. We ended the day with a really nice dinner in a local restaurant before hitting the hay quite earlier.
