The day will start in Qumran, where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. The fascinating museum and the audiovisual show explain the place’s history and significance very well. Afterwards, in Masada, we would get acquainted with another one of King Herod’s engineering feats and the epic tragedy that took place in this former palace. We could hike up for some exercise in the desert air or take the cable car for a quick ascend. We’ll end our day covered in Dead Sea mud, which holds many health properties and wash it off while floating in the salty water.
