Getting There & Away
Some hotels in Wadi Musa organise tours to Little Petra. Private taxis cost JD10 in one direction and between JD20 and JD25 return, including an hour’s wait. An accompanying guide costs JD50 from the Petra Visitor Centre.
The road to Little Petra is an extension of Tourism St. which loops north of the Mövenpick Hotel. After 8km there's a left turn signposted ‘Beda’ or ‘Al Beidha’, from where it’s just under 1km to the car park.
Alternatively, it’s a pleasant walk following the road. The route passes the village of Umm Sayoun, the ‘Elephant Rock’ formation and then ‘Ain Dibdibah, which once supplied Petra with much of its water. A shortcut across fields to the left about 1km before the junction to Al Beidha cuts off the corner.
