Jordan: Petra – View of Treasury from Above

The absolute best view of the main attraction of Petra – Al-Khazneh aka the Treasury – requires a steep hike to the rocks just above it on the opposite side of the canyon, this is known as Al-Khubtha trail. As a lot of things in Petra, everything around the Treasury is extremely and annoyingly commercialized – aggressive touters are everywhere. And at the top there is a “mandatory” cafe where you “have to” buy a stupidly pricey drink to get to the photo-op location. But it’s well worth it!
