There’s only one thing better than an ancient ruin filled with history: an ancient ruin filled with history on top of a cliff overlooking the dead sea and Jordan! Join us for a tour to the ancient world heritage site of Masada for some memorable moments.
Masada is one of the most famous ancient sites in Israel, and for a good reason. It is a UNESCO declared world heritage site. Not only is it filled with history, but the view from the site is truly something to behold. We provide a shuttle for this self guided tour in early morning, to catch the sunrise shedding light on the Dead Sea valley and the Edom mountains of Jordan. The shuttle arrives through the Roman Ramp, and then the participants can go up the trail (about 15 min) to the site and find a good spot to see the sunrise. Coffee and cookies will be supplied for some morning snack. You’ll have approximately 2 hours to scout the site and get a better idea about what Masada is all about.
At the end, the shuttle will depart back to the Dead Sea Adventure Hostel to arrive for breakfast time.
Duration of activity: approx. 4 hours.
