A short drive from Madaba is Mt Nebo.

Day 3: Amman - Petra

Drive to the ancient Rose City of Petra. You can stop en route to visit the impressive crusader castle of Karak. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Petra is the jewel in Jordan’s archaeological crown and you have two days to discover all of its hidden gems. The entrance to the city is through a narrow, deep winding trail-like fissure in the rocks known as the Siq.

Spend the evening at a Bedouin camp, enjoy a traditional meal and sleep in a tent or under a galaxy of stars!
