Exploring Petra: A First-Timer's Guide to Visiting One of the 7 Wonders of the World

Oct 8, 2015  |   Contributor: Nicolle Monico

Hidden away among pink-hued cliffs in the valley of Wadi Musa, sits the forgotten city of Petra. In its heyday, the enigmatic destination was home to 30,000 people and the center of a kingdom four times the size of Jordan. The once-nomadic tribe of Nabataeans who called Petra home gained their wealth through the frankincense and myrrh trade as well as charging merchants for safe passage. It is their 800 tombs and monuments in the 2,640-acre park that drive visitors to the region daily. Today, the city’s chiseled architecture carved out of Mount Hor’s rockface is a reminder of what once was, evoking a sense of awe and mystery upon arrival.
