Embarking on this captivating journey, we venture southward through the picturesque Judean Hills, passing by the Inn of the Good Samaritan. Pausing at sea level offers a perfect opportunity for an unforgettable photo, after which our descent beneath sea level unfolds, leading us to the renowned Dead Sea. Our initial destination is the historic Masada, where a cable car ride elevates us to the plateau summit, allowing exploration of the remnants of Herod’s ancient palace fortress, steeped in a rich history spanning 2,055 years. Witnessing extraordinary structures, including palaces and a bathhouse, adds a fascinating dimension to the experience. Continuing our odyssey, we traverse the desert oasis of Ein Gedi and Qumran, the significant site where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. The remainder of the day is dedicated to leisure, as we bask in the sun on one of the Dead Sea’s pristine beaches. Here, the extraordinary buoyancy of the water, 8.6 times saltier than the ocean, creates a unique floating experience. Take advantage of the Dead Sea mud, a natural skin mask, and immerse yourself in the sheer splendor of the Dead Sea sun, culminating in a day of relaxation and discovery.
