Petra, Wadi Rum, and Shobak 3 day Itinerary
Wadi Rum is in the middle of the desert and is inhabited by the Zalabia Bedouins. See the beautiful landscapes and the stone structures that seem to pop out of the sand. There are ancient paintings, and graffiti on the sides of the mountains. The Bedouins that reside in Wadi Rum, are famous trackers, and rock climbers.
Petra was an inheritance left to us by the Nabateans. The Nabateans prospered by building great water cisterns, and selling the water in times of drought. As you enter Petra through the Siq, understand what makes this one of the Seven Wonders of the World. There are caves that were used for worship and burial. Visit the Roman Theater, the tombs, the temples, and much more.
Shobak castle was built in 1115. Not much of the castle remains today. It has not been totally excavated. There are 3 walls that remain from the original structure. It is very isolated on a rocky mountain, overlooking fruit trees, and that is what gives the castle its charm. The view is outstanding from the top of the mountain.
