Down to the Dead Sea

nahal davidDeparting from Jerusalem, the landscape changes quickly, as we descend to the lowest place in the world (!).

Passing by the “Sea Level” sign and by Jericho, we head first to Masada .

Masada was built by King Herod, but is better known for the last stand of the Jews at the end of the Great Jewish Revolt (66-70 CE).

The dramatic story is enhanced by rich archaeological remains and a well planned visitors center.

In nearby Ein Gedi  we can have lunch and then stroll in the beautiful botanical gardens  of the kibbutz. We can then head to Ein-Gedi’s Nature Reserve , and can either hike and swim in Nahal David.

On the way back we  stop and visit the site of Qumran , famous for the Dead Sea Scrolls, and ofcourse have a floating experience at the Dead Sea.

O/N: Jerusalem.

Cost: $700
