Aaron's Tomb, the highest point in Petra.
If you have the time and the energy to face the inclination, climb up to the shrine of the prophet Aaron, 1,350m (4,429 ft.) above sea level. It is the highest point in Petra, and you will be rewarded by spectacular views of the entire region. The climb takes about 2-3 hours, so be sure to wear a good pair of walking shoes and take plenty of water.
The Ammarin Bedouin Camp
If you want an alternative to the ordinary, spend a night at the Ammarin Bedouin Camp. The Ammarin are a local tribe that settled near Petra, in Beidha, during the early
19th century. With an objective to nurture the local Bedouin culture while raising awareness on the surrounding environment, the Ammarin Bedouin Camp promises to be a magnificent experience filled with entertainment that includes authentic Bedouin music, dance, and delicious local cuisine.

The tents are furnished with Bedouin-style mattresses and rugs to accommodate guests, while the campsite itself has a large common area that can host up to 350 guests and has modern facilities such as showers with running hot water housed in a Bedouin tent.
Visitors to the Ammarin Bedouin Camp are constantly reminded by their surroundings of the rich and magical history of the lost city of Petra. Whether you fancy a day of hiking and trekking or an afternoon of camel riding throughout Beidha and Petra, the Ammarin Bedouin Camp is well worth a stopover.
