View of the cliffs of the ancient fortress Masada, which rises more than 1,300 feet and overlooks the Judean Desert and the Dead Sea.
The Masada fortress sits high atop an isolated rock plateau and is the legendary site of a Roman siege that prompted the residents to commit mass suicide rather than be captured. Today it is a remarkable monument to visit for the views as well as the history.

An Amazing place and an amazing story. I hiked the Snake Path up around sunrise- a great experience that almost did me in!
Did you really? I wasn’t able to be there at sunrise and I opted for the cable car :) It was way too hot for the snake path
When I welcomed the new millennium on top of Masada I thought to myself – if only the stones could speak and tell us all they have witnessed during hundreds of years of history.
