ALONG THE DEAD SEA PRIVATE TOUR
MASADA & QUMRAN
We’ll start descending from the Jerusalem Mountains into the Judean Desert full of breathtaking views Here over 2000 years ago Ancient Jews built two present times World Heritage sites which we’ll visit today - Masada and Qumran.
Our first top on the way will be a National Park Qumran, a two thousand years old communal village of the Jewish Sect “Yahad” , which is also known as “Essenes”. This is also the place where the Dead Sea Scrolls have been found, in the surrounding caves.
Our way will further lead along the shores and breathtaking views of the Dead Sea to Masada Fortress. Masada, a dramatically located site of great natural beauty overlooking the Dead Sea, is a rugged natural fortress on which the Judaean King Herod the Great constructed his palace complex.
One of the most exciting and frequently-toured places in Israel, Masada relates a story of perseverance and power, faith and surrender, ambitions, and finally - of a tragic end.
