Petra Charity Trek

5th - 9th October 2016
Deposit: £199
Sponsorship level: £2,150

The whole area is surrounded by hills and mountains ensuring a stunning view. No journey to Petra would be complete without a visit to Petra - now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it has been nominated by the BBC as one of the 40 places to see before you die.

The following gives you a brief taste* of the challenge ahead but for more detailed information please do not hesitate to contact one of the Overseas Team on 020 7424 5511.

Day 1: UK - Amman - Petra
Depart the UK for Amman and transfer through the mountainous desert landscape to our hotel in Petra for the night.

Day 2: Petra - Little Petra
Today we visit the magical and fascinating Unesco World Heritage Site of Petra, a city carved into the mountains and subsequently lost for hundreds of years.

Day 3: Little Petra - Wadi Gnai - Wadi Bageh
After a hearty campfire cooked breakfast we ready ourselves for the day of trekking ahead. Today we cross some truly magnificent landscapes as our journey takes us through Little Petra, a Byzantine caravan station.

Day 4: Wadi Bageh - Ghbour Whedat - Shkaret Msaed - Dead Sea
The landscape is flatter today crossing local farms and Bedouin sites. Tourists are rarely seen here and trekkers are welcomed by the locals.

Day 5: Dead Sea - Amman - UK
Take advantage of the medicinal properties of the Dead Sea and float in this incredible expanse of water, so heavily laden with salt you will find it impossible to sink.

There are still some places available on our next Petra Desert Trek.
