Petra, known originally to its dwellers as Raqmu, is the 'lost city' in Jordan, relaying a fascinating story of a lost civilization hidden throughout millennium. As one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, a kingdom of striking architecture reveals hand-carved temples and tombs in its rose blush sandstone. Inhabited by the Nabateans, the nomadic desert people took advantage of Petra, identified by some as the capital of the Banatean Kingdom, given its location as one of the major trading hubs. In close proximity to the trade routes, it served as the center of their caravan trade. Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, Petra, Jordan's most-visited tourist attraction, is a magnet for visitors from far and wide, who can see, touch and admire the intricate curvatures revealing themselves throughout the twisted passageway of the 1.2km long gorge, known as the Siq. In the outer peripheral is another landscape of breathtaking beauty, the 'Valley of the Moon' known as Wadi Rum, a desert terrain surrounded by sandstone and granite in south Jordan dating back to per-historical times. Populated today by a few hundred Bedouins, Wadi Rum is a journey into the wilderness, where adventurous Jeep tours, rock climbing, and camel riding are to be enjoyed within a region distinctive for its red-pink sand and mesmerizing formations. It first captured the interest of the world after appearing in the 1962 film Lawrence of Arabia. Practically in touching distance of Israel's borders, it's easier than you might think to cross into Jordan territory. Abraham's Petra Tours are planned from start to finish with every last detail in mind. Providing transportation, accommodation, entrance fees, guides and meals, all you have to do is show up ready to experience the wonders of the Jordanian Desert. We recommend combining a trip to Petra & Wadi Rum on our Petra Tours, departing from Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Nazareth, where we cross the northern Sheikh Hussein border and head to Jerash, a northern city in Jordan.‏ Now new, also Petra tours from Eilat, crossing to Jordan through the Aqaba border. There is nothing quite like a night under the desert stars at a Bedouin campsite for a flavor of the unique hospitably of the Nabateans, before awaking to take on Petra.
