Entering in to the Judean Desert this morning we descend to the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea Basin. We will continue south toward the symbol of the desert, Masada, the last strong hold of the Jews in the Great Revolt against the Romans, the symbol of Israel. Taking the cable car to the top, we will tour this hilltop fortress built by King Herod, and hear the amazing story of its fall to Rome. Then we continue to Qumran, the city of the Essene cult, where the Scrolls of the Dead Sea were found, we will see their ancient city in the heart of the desert and try to solve the greatest mysteries of the time, who were they and what is the reasons of the scrolls and how we found them?
From there we will continue to the Dead Sea where you will have time to float in the mineral rich lake.
