Stop At: Mitzpe Yeriho, Mitzpe Yeriho, West Bank

a beautiful view point overlooking Yeriho

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Masada National Park, Masada 8698000 Israel

Due to the unwillingness of the Jewish residents of the fortress to succumb to the Roman army – even at the cost of their lives – Masada has become one of the best known legends of Jewish heroism. We will go up to the mountain fortress by cable car and learn the amazing story of what happened here almost 2,000 years ago.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Dead Sea, Israel

The Dead Sea is definitely one of the wonders of the world. In Hebrew we call it the salt sea and once it was called the ancient sea. When you go on a trip here you encounter wonderful desert landscapes and unique natural phenomena. The water is so saline, about 34% that life almost non-existent here. At the same time, there are a number of sweet springs on the shores of the Dead Sea, around which beautiful oases have developed. On a trip in the area, it is recommended to visit one of them, such as Ein Gedi or Ein Feshcha.

The Dead Sea is the lowest place in the world where we can travel. The height of the Dead Sea is -423 meters, which is 1,388 feet below the global sea level. The depth along with the unique minerals found in the Dead Sea make it a great healing site.

You are invited to be smeared in the special mud of the Dead Sea or just float on the water even sitting. The density of salt water will not allow your body to sink.
