JUDEAN DESERT & DEAD SEA “Caves, monasteries and outlooks”

Shortly after leaving the holy city Jerusalem behind, we begin descending to the lowest point on earth. Within minutes the landscape changes to yellowish, sandy and rocky. We will start our day with a surprising visit at the historical baptism site at the Jordan river. Our tour will also include a visit in one of the ancient monasteries which where built by early Christian communities fleeing the holy city of Jerusalem.

But this day would not be complete without understanding the story behind the 2000 year old scrolls which were discovered in the hidden caves of the Judean desert. After enjoying a nice lunch we will start a two hour Jeep drive, watching the sun set above the Jordan Valley.

 

Highlights:

  • historical baptism site at the Jordan River
  • visit at one of the ancient monasteries
  • Qumran Site where the Dead Sea Scrolls where discovered or hike in Ein Gedi Nature Reserve
