Day 6: Masada, Dead sea
For your last day in Israel we are heading to the desert.

years ago and the views of the dead sea and Jordan are breathtaking.

mountain just beware of the hot weather.
End your trip with a dip in the dead sea, the lowest body of water on earth. Thanks to
its high percentage of salinity, you can effortlessly float in the water. Be ready to relax
while admiring the Judean and Jordanian mountains.
