A flight over Jerusalem is an exhilarating and spiritual experience. Approaching it from the west, you will fly above the Jerusalem mountains. As the forests clear out, you will spot the National Holocaust Museum (Yad Vashem), and Mt. Herzl, where many of former leaders of the State of Israel are buried. Next, you’ll see the Parliament’s building (Knesset), The Supreme Court building and the Israel Museum.
Soon after, the helicopter will fly around the Old City, presenting its glittering Gold Dome of the Rock, the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and more. As you hover above the Mount of Olives you will notice the Garden of Gethsemane and the chapel of The ascension.
To your east, the majestic views of the Judean Desert, the Dead Sea, and the Biblical mountains of Moab will appear in full scale. As we return, you will see in the distance Ramallah, the capital of the Palestinian authority, as well as Nabi Samuil, where prophet Samuel is said to be buried.
