The rock camp is located in a spectacular setting in Beidha area, 14 km north of the ancient fabled
city of Petra on the scenic Wadi Nemelleh road leading to Wadi Araba in the heart of the ancient
Incense & Spice thriving trade route. Taking advantage of their unique location and protective
surroundings the Nabataeans harnessed the rain water, a rare commodity in the arid desert, building
dams and rock-carving water channels to create a major caravan station along the route offering
water, safe haven to caravans, and irrigating fields of various kinds of grapes they grew. The
partially painted 1st century A.D. fresco ceiling of one of the rock-carved houses in Siq el-Barid
(Little Petra) shows vine leaves and grapes with little birds sitting on the vines. It was a Nabataean
custom to drink wine at banquets. An intact rock-carved grape press and a 2,000 year old dam
can be seen today at the campground.
