The next morning head into The “Siq” , the gorge that leads into Petra , ending at the famous Al-Khazneh (English: “The Treasury“). Continue into the main street of the city, and after a lunch break head back to the main entrance, and after a bried view of Petra New Museum head back to the border crossing into Israel and a flying back to Tel-Aviv.
