An ancient ruin steeped in history is always fascinating, but here we offer something better: a chance to explore an ancient ruin steeped in history, at sunrise, on top of a cliff overlooking the Dead Sea and Jordan!
Join us for a self-guided tour to the ancient world heritage site of Masada, at Sunrise.
Masada is one of the most famous ancient sites in Israel, and for a good reason. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site, with a rich and tumultuous history, and view that is truly something to behold. We provide a shuttle for this self guided tour in early morning, to catch the sunrise as it sheds orange-purple light over the Dead Sea Valley and the Edom mountains of Jordan. The shuttle arrives through the Roman Ramp, and then the participants can walk up the trail (about 15 min) to the site and find a good spot to enjoy the sunrise. Coffee and cookies will be supplied for a morning snack. You’ll have approximately 2 hours to scout the site and get a better understanding of Masada.
At the end, the shuttle will depart back to the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel just in time for breakfast.
Duration of activity: approx. 4 hours.
