Saturday, October 31, 2015
After breakfast, drive through the moonscaped Judean Desert down to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth (almost 400 meters below sea level).
Driving by Qumran Caves where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
Then visit of Masada. Ascend by cable car to the top of the mountain to marvel at King Herod’s desert fortress-palace and last stronghold of the Jewish zealots against Roman domination in 73 CE.
Visit of the Kibbutz Ein Gedi.
Ein Gedi is a lush oasis set between the harsh Judean Desert and the sterile Dead Sea. Below the craggy cliffs, nestling in the rocky canyons of Nahal David and Nahal Arugot are seemingly miraculous fresh water springs flowing into clear streams and waterfalls, all that is needed to bring this corner of the desert to life.
In the afternoon, leisure time to have a floating bath in the Dead Sea.
