On our trip to The Holy Land we journeyed south through Jordan toward the Dead Sea and rode the tram up to the top of the cliffs to the World UNESCO site called Masada: a fortress and humongous castle built by Herod The Great. It was a remarkable and well-preserved site that showed how they collected and conserved water in the desert environment in cisterns, looked out over encampments and heated elaborate bath houses which the royalty spent hours in.
We visited the Oasis in Ein Gedi where we hiked to waterfalls and got to ride on camels. We ended the day at the Dead Sea where those who wanted to could float in the salt sea (5 times saltier than the ocean) and experience the world famous minerals and healing properties of the water.
