After an early breakfast I was ready at 9am to start into a beautiful sunny day.
The 25 km back to the main road was easy and fast because the road had a down slop and there was almost no wind.
I had no money and was looking for a ATM-machine to buy some water. For the next 30km I could not find anything. In a village I asked some people and they said the next bank is in Amman.
Then suddenly on the highway, like an oasis a big filling station appeared in the distance. I was happy and knew I could at least pay with my credit card to get something to drink.
When I got closer I saw the gas station was still under construction and I only could get some questionable tab water.
In the next little village I managed to find a shop owner who exchanged my last 20€ for a very bad exchange rate. But at least I could buy some fluids.
The terrain was now rising again. I had to climb from 800m to 1600m and when I finally did it it was time to find a place to stay for the night.
In the mountains the temperature dropped quickly and the wind was chilly. I set up my tent and was happy to get out of the cold wind.
The next morning I climbed to 1700m. The highest point of my trip so far.
The rest of to 40km to Petra was mostly downhill and so at about 2pm I was in front of the entrance to Petra.
The entrance fee to see the ancient city of Petra is very expensive. 50€ for one day or 55€ for two days.
I thought the best option was to find a hotel and take the 2 day pass. I quickly found a hotel close by and at 4pm I entered Petra.
I walked through the siq, saw the treasury and took the 7 km climb to the monastery. I reached the monastery just before sunset and was alone to enjoy the magnificent view.
I had to go all the way back and so it was already dark when I reached the exit. But without the many tourists Petra is even more amazing.
The next day I went back and this time I took a pass leading me around a mountain and on top of the treasury.
I had a wonderful view from above.
Petra was a unbelievable experience and if you can you should visit.
