Bedouin experience in Petra
Petra was the capital of the ancient Nabatean kingdom, whose monarchs made it prosper due to its location on the caravan route. Its name derives from the Greek πέτρα (stone), because it is a city literally excavated and sculpted in stone. Numerous buildings, whose facades are directly sculpted in the rock, form a unique monumental ensemble in the world.
My name is Abu Noura, and I want to introduce you to my people, the Bedouins, who inhabited the city of Petra until in 1984, when we moved to protect the archaeological heritage. Many of us keep the caves where our parents and grandparents were born and grew up. They are caves with carved facades, with classic lintels, similar to those that can be seen along the tourist itineraries.
A camel ride around Petra, climb the mountains, a bedouin dinner and a tea, sleep in one of our caves and a breakfast at dawn and see how illuminates Petra Mountains in pink, is a unique experience can I offer to you.
