Photographer's Note

Hi all,
I am re-posting this image again because I was not satisfied with a quality.

After passing Information Center I walked for a while on gravel road before entering a As-Siq gorge. Thru the gorge is easy 15min walk to Al-Khazneh (Treasury).

The ancient main entrance to Petra. An impressive 1200m long, deep and narrow gorge of stunning natural beauty. The Siq is hemmed in by cliffs soaring up to 80m. Surffice it to say that passing through it, one gets to see all the typical Petraean features, bizarre-looking geological formations, colorful rocks, agricultural terraces, water channels cut into the cliffs, dams, and votive-niches carved into the rock.
