This is the first of our Trip Series: Here & There Around Israel - Heritage and Nature.
We will be be visiting some beautiful sites.

Masada An interesting and special tour on the top of Mount Masada. We will visit the most important sites, such as one of Herod's palaces, the castle walls, the synagogue, the bathhouse and more.

Ein Gedi We will walk in the largest nature reserve in the State of Israel. A real oasis - green, abundant in water, and maybe we can also see the typical animals of the area.

If we still have time:

Qasser El Yahud A historic site at the southern end of the Jordan River, just before entering the Dead Sea. Maybe this is where the children of Israel crossed the Jordan? An important site for Jews, sacred to Christians. Why? The answer on the trip.

Breakfast: There will be a breakfast break at the expense of the participants in one of the appropriate places along the way. Alternatively, you can bring a packed breakfast.
Lunch: Bring a packed lunch.

Back to the starting point around 18:00.
