Early departure from the hotel.
We drive eastward through the Wilderness of Judea, see the Bedouin settlements along the way, passing by the Inn of the Good Samaritan descending to the lowest point on earth – the Dead Sea, 400 Meters below sea level.
Proceed south along the Dead Sea west coast, view of Qumeran and its caves where the famous Dead Sea Scrolls were found, the oasis of Ein Gedi, arrive at Mount Masada. Early climb up the Snake Path leading to Mount Masada rising almost 400 meters above the Dead Sea, arrive at the top to enjoy a breathtaking view of a majestic sunrise over Moav Mountains, the Dead Sea and the Wilderness of Judea.
Tour of the impressive ruins of the great fortress established by King Herod the Great over 2000 years ago, which later on became the last stronghold of the Jewish rebels against the Roman Empire (73 AD). See the walls, the palaces, the storerooms, the Roman bath house, the old synagogue, the Roman encampments and the ramp.
Descend by the cable car and travel to a nearby beach of the Dead Sea – stop for a swim in its therapeutic water, experience the black mud and enjoy the unforgettable feelings of floating on the water.
