In the second half of February, we plan to spend two days in the Dead Sea area. We have already booked one night at Masada.
We will take a bus from the CBS, Jerusalem.
Where should we go first?
Of course, we would like to "swim" in the Dead Sea (the mud wraps sound interesting, too).
We are hikers and would like to do some hiking too (of course, we will walk up to Masada but is it feasible to walk up on the plateau - from Ein Gedi, for example?).
How much time do you think we need to get a thorough experience of the Dead Sea, also considering the weather in February?
When is the last bus from the Dead Sea area?
Is there a possibility to leave our backpacks somewhere (though light), if we decide to hike up on the plateau - or also walk around Ein Gedi´s botanical garden, etc.?
