It's best to do this hike early in the day, as it is quite steep. You will marvel just at the trail, where you can see huge areas of carving which the Nabateans had to do in order to build the trail. Once on the...More
Leave early in the morning, so you're not roasting on the way up, but this was definitely a highlight. The steps up did require a few rest spots to catch your breath, but the views at the top are fantastic. No railings, so if that...More
The main tourist route up the stone staircase is quiet straightforward, until the last part were there aren’t clear sign posts, I expect the tea tent would send you in the right direction if you took a wrong turn. The actual High Place is a...More
The High Place of Sacrifice takes about 25 minutes to walk, stopping to take photos on route and was one of our favourite places and definitely worth the effort to get there. It is steeper than the monastery walk and mainly steps so not much...More
For my adult children who made it up to this place they said it was the highlight of their visit to Petra. The views are amazing and they spent some time just soaking in the views. They reported that not many people over 30 were...More

The High Place of Sacrifice is in Petra. If you have not done that then do the whole hike starting at the Basin Restaurant then descending into the amphitheater near the Treasury. There is hardly anyone on the route and you will have amazing tombs to yourself. The view from the top is amazing as is the alter carved unit rock. To get there you have to scramble up a sloping rock at the very top. A number of people don't do this and miss the sacrificial alter and the amazing views.
