Nine of the best hiking trails in the world

The Back Route to Petra, Jordan: Another lost city that draws a surprising number of crowds, Petra’s crowded Treasury is easier to appreciate after a grueling hike through the remote Petra Basin from Little Petra — a smaller pocket of sandstone-carved ancient homes and tombs 6 miles from the main drag. This route to Petra’s hidden Monastery, which is even bigger than the Treasury, avoids the tourist-clogged steps by arriving from the other direction for an easier down-step entrance into Petra that will also allow you to fit in more hiking.
