What is the best time to visit Petra?

Spring months of March-May and autumn months of September-November is undoubtedly the best time to visit Petra. These months are cooler, comparatively, and also the best one for touring out and exploring some of the iconic sites in and around Jordan. During summers, Petra is stifling hot and dry, with temperatures rising above 36°C often! Jordan experiences all four seasons of winter, summer, spring and autumn. It’s also considered to be one of the year-round destinations for travellers worldwide. The diverse landscape and the magnificent locales are really worth visiting once in a lifetime. For visiting Petra, the best time during the day would be early morning, around sunrise, at 5 am. It’s the best way to avoid the crowd as well. However, if you aren’t a morning person, plan your visit to Petra at 3 o’clock in the evening and stay there till the sunset. The midday light makes the rocks glow in a ruby colour.
