Masada was the last Jewish stronghold against the Romans in 70 CE. We’ll ascend Masada and see how the Jews lived on this mountain fortress, holding off the Romans. Elana will take those who want to take the cable car, while Ron will lead the others on a hike, that the Jewish rebels no doubt ascended.
Then we’ll visit the hiding place of King David, En Gedi (one of Ron’s favorite spots!) where you will see gorgeous waterfalls, wildlife and more. David wrote many of the Psalms here. We’ll visit Qumran, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found—an amazing story! And then take a dip (or float) in the Dead Sea—the lowest place on earth.
And then...we will go to Kfar Hanokdim. We used to do this but lately it has been hard to book. Thankfully, we have rooms this time! Kfar Hanokdim is makeshift Bedouin camp—but don't worry, with 4-star hotel rooms and the most amazing views you have ever seen! Did we mention the optional canal ride? Kfar Hanokdim has been a favorite of all our tourists.
Overnight in Dead Sea Region.
