Petra (araabia البتراء, Al-Batrā‘; vanakreeka Πέτρα) on ajalooline kaljulinn ja arheoloogiline leiukoht Jordaania lõunaosas Ma‘āni kubernerkonnas. Petra on kuulus nii oma arhitektuuri kui ka veejuhtmete süsteemi poolest ning saanud kaljude värvi järgi hüüdnimeks Roosa linn.

Arvatavasti juba 312. a eKr nabatealaste pealinnana asutatud Petra on Jordaania enim külastatav turismiobjekt. See paikneb alangus Jabal al-Madhbaḩi nõlval keset mägesid, mis moodustavad Surnumerest Al-‘Aqabah' laheni kulgeva Wādī ‘Arabah' oru idaserva. 1985. aastal kanti Petra UNESCO maailmapärandi nimistusse.

Läänemaailmale oli paik tundmatu kuni 1812. aastani, mil Petrast kõneles Šveitsi maadeavastaja Johann Ludwig Burckhardt.

2007. aastal valiti Petra seitsme uue maailmaime hulka.

Don't forget carrying water and a hat, or you get burned! Climb up to the Al-Deir, very exhausting, but unforgettable!

Sacrifice point (trail behind the Amphitheater) is completely worth it. Walk down other side to soldier's tomb & garden to trail head to monastery. LONG hike (10+mi). One of best days of my life.

Definitely stay two days. Lookout point past the monastery and sacrifice point are worth the hike.

PETRA - JORDAN - World Heritage UNESCO Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean caravan-city, between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria

Go to: High point of Sacrifice and the Monastery. Getting to the top of the latter won't take you more than 45min from the last cafeteria. Monastery to the visitors' centre: 1:30 at steady pace

Замечательно место. Пешком до Эль Хазне(на фото) идти около 2.5 километров, можно доехать на повозке или гольфкаре но лучше пройти пешком, так как эта дорога и есть самое красивое в Петре
