Watch the sunset

This is a truly magical Petra experience that you simply cannot miss. As Petra is located in a valley, you must travel to the outskirts of Wadi Musa to see the sunset. The best spots to see the sunset are located along the road (No. 35) from Wadi Musa to Taybeh, about a 5- to 10-minute drive from the centre of Wadi Musa.

There’s a small municipal park that has a great view of Petra – the city would be right at your feet. As the sun sets, watch the mountains change in colour from bright orange to gold. This is an experience you won’t easily forget!

You can also opt to enjoy the sunset at the Mövenpick Nabatean Castle Hotel along road No. 35, which offers commanding views of the mountains and the valley.
