Masada is a truly breathtaking visit. We arrived early morning and rode by via cable cart. The park gets packed pretty early and the heat can be a drag so make sure you hydrate properly. Tour can easily be done in 2-3 hours but pace...More

Took the cable car to the top and visited the ruins of Masada. Very interesting and a good time. Instead of taking the cable car back down, walked down. If you do this 1) don't buy a round trip cable car ticket; 2) wear good...More

This is a very scenic view. It is worthwhile alone to view the Dead Sea and Judean Wilderness. But it is an inspiring story of people fighting the Romans-the original "Evil Empire"- to the death for freedom.

Such an enjoyable and beautiful hike. Make sure you go early so you don't roast in the mid-day sun. If you're up for it - the snake path is a much more fun way up. Be conscious that you can only enter the snake path...More

A trip to Israel is not complete without visiting the Masada. It sits atop a very high plateau which made me wonder how they were ever able to build Herod's pleasure place and the fortress itself. You can hike up to the top or you...More

Our tour to the Dead Sea region included Masada (a fortress made by King Herod). It was an amazing construction on the plateau at the top of a cliff. It in itself was a construction miracle. To supply water to the site, they used water...More

It is very safe. I always keep my passport with me. Other than that, I’ve never had an issue with theft at Masada (or anywhere is in Israel).
