All reviews cable car snake path dead sea mountain top jordan valley lots of water walk up incredible history an absolute views are spectacular mass suicide king herod ein bokek awe inspiring well worth the effort audio guide visiting israel
Myself and my partner got here early in the morning (before it got to hot), and took the pathway up. It’s a long hike but well worth the effort for the experience. I would recommend waiting for the cable car for anyone carrying an injury...More
A must-have experience
Mythology excites a world heritage site with a fascinating story that has been amazingly preserved and restored. The world's lowest place in the Dead Sea between the Ein Bokek hotel area and the amazing Ein Gedi kibbutz. Another access from the magic...More
Fascinating history and nice museum. Fabulous views from the top. Good facilities. Very exposed and hot at top so take lots of water but refill points everywhere. This is a must see. We hired s car and plenty of free underground parking
Be well prepared when you visit this site; as it is in the desert, bring a lot of water with you (there is also a fountain up in the fortress where you can refill your bottles), sunscreen and a hat. First you have to visit...More

The Masada Fortress is yet another "must see" site in Israel, not only beacause it is a UNESCO Wlrld Heritage Site, but because it is a symbol of determination and heroism for the Israel people; many Israel soldiers undergo their swearing-in ceremony at this striking...More
We visited Masada and walked up the same way the romans did when conquering the place.
Really the recommended and non-touri way.
Up there it is just overwhelming and impressing. The size, the scenic view. The history. Just everything. A must for an Israel visit.
We hadn’t expected to see these marvellous ruins from almost 2000 years ago and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Israel. Although an arduous climb in the heat of June it was well worth the effort as the view was truly...More
Masada Fortress is a unique place on this planet. That people build this hidden castle 2.000 years ago is just incredible - and how they did it. One important point, if you are not joining a sunrise tour: avoid a visit from noon until early...More
It seems very unlikely that the site would completely close for either archeological work or for maintenance. It may close due to dangerous weather conditions, but that is a day by day variable that you wouldn’t be able to... More
It seems very unlikely that the site would completely close for either archeological work or for maintenance. It may close due to dangerous weather conditions, but that is a day by day variable that you wouldn’t be able to determine until you’re at the site. Is a good idea to have a secondary option, but I wouldn’t worry about it.
