Ever since watching the movie starred by Peter O’Toole I have been curious about Masada, World Heritage and National Park. And it was awesome: after a 1 hour and a half drive from Jerusalem along breathtaking views of the Dead Sea to your left, we...More

It is really dry here, and the hike up is about a half-hour but worth it. There is a cable car if you don't want to hike up. To learn the history of this place is pretty amazing, sad but amazing. the sights from up...More

Anyone who visits Israel should see Masada! It’s absolutely amazing and you’ll need a guide to understand all of the history of this increíble place!

Masada is a few km off the road next to dead sea. As you approach the entrance you see a street parking lot. This is used by those who choose to walk the path to the hill top. Not an easy way up, takes some...More

Arrived here around noon on a Sunday with a 3 bus tour. Place was very crowded. Fast trams provided an easier way up, but a strenuous hike is available. The actual hilltop site is a stunning piece of Israel’s history. Very, very nice gift shop...More

Even though we were getting a little ruin’d out at this point, this was definitely work doing. Recommend taking the Snake Bite road up the hill; looks daunting from the bottom (and the top) but eminently doable as long as you take your time, bring...More

Masada should be a world wonder, considering how Herod the great managed to have it built at such an isolated and high mountain top, without the help of today’s modern technology and machinery. A very strategic location to hide from your enemy(ies) and to be...More
