Fantastic experience! We hiked with haste to reach the Monastery in our allotted time. Scaling the approximately 850 steps, be cautious of encounters with donkeys bearing tourists, being led by Bedouin children. We purchased a mint tea from a vendor near the Monastery, where we sat and appreciated the magnificent view before our rapid return. Overall, we hiked 10 miles within Petra, so get a sense of how long your journey will take, should you have time restrictions. Most definitely a highlight of Petra which you should attempt to experience.

The Monastery is located at the far end of the Petra complex and it takes at least two hours to get there on foot. This is certainly a well invested two hours since the view from the knoll across is breathtaking. There's a little shop as well for necessary refreshments.

The Monastery is not similar to the Treasury; it is much bigger and better built. The hike up is a bit challenge, mostly from the speedy donkeys, uneven steps and winding path. Do take time for this as it is a very long hike and can be deadly. Do your own research. Once arrived, highly recommended to hike up the very top; it is not as difficult - the view are 10 times better up there.

This place is quite a climb (45 - 60 min) but the reward is fantastic. Most people think they've seen something impressive when they saw the (super famous) Treasury when entering Petra. This place is much-much-much bigger and more impressive. Plus you've got amazing views when you walk a few minutes uphill behind the restaurant. Highlight of my holiday!!

It's definitely worth the hike. The Monastery is much less crowded than the treasury, so it makes for better pictures and a less touristy experience. Enjoy the climb!
