We leave Ras Al Feid along a rocky sandstone terrain. Throughout are spectacular varying views of the barren desert landscape with surprise encounters of desert vegetation and animal life. Approaching Little Petra there are signs of increasing human habitation of Bedouin camps, sheep pens, and small agricultural plots. We enter a small sandstone canyon and wind our way through to the site of Beihdah.
The Ras al-Feid area is accessible only by jeep; the nearest village, Jahayir, is a 2-hour 4×4-drive away. Qbour al-Wahdat and al-Farsh areas are accessible by jeep and by the paved road that runs past the water treatment plant. There is no public transport to Little Petra, but public taxis are plentiful. Wadi Musa has the nearest bus terminal on the following day.
Mobile Phone Coverage: Service is limited, but has been found on the ridge of Mt. Safaha, the top of Wadi al-Aghlat before Little Petra, and around Little Petra.
