Although largely deserted by the seventh century, the nearly 1000 caves of Petra have always attracted the local Bedouin tribes — and hordes of tourists— to the #LostCity.
@zuckerandspice knew the key to really take in this incredible place without the massive crowds is to explore at sunrise. Another tip – access Petra faster via the #UumSayhoun village.
If you enter Petra at the main gate, you have to walk 4 kilometers to reach the center of the ancient city.
Alternatively, the Bedouin village of Uum Sayhoun is only 7 kilometers from #WadiMusa. The back door to Petra is at the end of the village, near a parking lot. You’ll elude the tourist crowds entering the main gate and walk only 2 kilometers to Petra’s city center. It’s the starting point for most of the hikes in Petra, so this gate is convenient if you plan to walk a lot anyway.
