The High Altar

This is the high altar of sacrifice in Petra. A pretty substantial hike up narrow stairs chiseled out of the rocks, to one of the highest peaks in the region and a view over a large part of the city. The top was probably used for cultic ceremonies, as the name subtly suggests.

Roasting in the desert heat, but well worth the hike and sweat

The hike up through a bit of a gorge
Some sort of monuments or ritual items at the top

Tombs look a lot smaller from this high up
