... This, combined with changing trade routes, led to the abandonment of the city by the seventh century AD. Fortunately for us, the city was "rediscovered" in the 1800s and is now a UNESCO heritage site. We arrived in Petra about 9am and began the 3km walk into the ancient city.

The journey and the destination did not disappoint as the views from the climb ...
