This is where Petra can be seen as soon as she enters. It's really a very long rolling, very narrow valley passage. Tens of millions of years ago, this region was a result of subsequent crustal changes at the bottom of the ocean, leading to a desert zone. It's really very similar to the American Antelope Valley. It's very spectacular. If the weather is good, you can take great pictures.
Known as "Rose Canyon", Sick Canyon is the only entrance to the ancient city of Petra, winding deep, thus entering the ancient city gives a unique sense of cave. The Canyon is very narrow, about 1.5 kilometers long, about 7 meters wide at the widest point and only one car can pass through at the narrowest point.
Snake Road is at the entrance of the ancient city of Petra. It's a long way to go. Especially on the way back, it's very tiring. There are local carriages to ride, which can save some energy. There are cliffs on both sides of the serpentine road. It's hard to imagine such an open city.
Snake Road, also known as the Sick Canyon, is the passage to the ancient city of Petra. The passage in the middle of the canyon is very small, and the narrowest part can only be passed by one person. The cliff is very high, and you can only see a very steep line of day when you look up. Walking into Petra here, you feel more and more mysterious about the ancient city of Petra.
