What people are saying:

[Snake Road] is a winding passage in the ancient city of Petra, so it is called "snake road". The starting point is at the mountain gate of the ancient city, and the ending point is at the Nizni Temple, which is nearly two kilometers long.

    Gorgeous

    No way you can miss the Siq while visiting Petra, since it's basically the only way towards the complex. Walking through the gorge and been rewarded with the view over the Treasury is stunning.
