Only very few tourists take the time to experience the topography and history of the area in this special way with breathtaking views of the mountains and across the wide basin of Wadi Araba. The climb up to the mountain plateau of Ad Deir is not very strenuous. All you need is a little physical condition for the ups and downs of the path and the stairs .
We Will Head To Little Petra, From there the track goes out into the desert, we will pass by Bedouin tents, goats, camels, Soon the trail passes through the mountains to a huge open plain. In the distance you can see Wadi Musa (the closest town to Petra), it's a beautiful sight. The landscape is timeless and so quiet.
At this point we will reached some huge mountains and the start of the uphill climb, After about an hour the uphill starts! The track is really well defined and stairs have been built into the path, On all sides you see beautiful mountains with stunning patterns, carved out through thousands of years of rain and wind.
The views from the path are spectacular. It's how we imagine the Grand Canyon might look, there are so many epic ledges to stop and take photos. It is an amazing landscape and the views get better and better as you climb.
At the top of the stairs is one of the best views of the track, The stairs are over, but there's still a little more to go. After a couple of turns you'll get your first glimpse of the Monastery.
The path goes back onto gravel and you wind through a mountain pass before finally arriving at the Monastery.
