Sunrise from Masada and visiting Ein Gedi Natural Reserve & the Dead Sea

Sunrise from Masada and visiting Ein Gedi Natural Reserve & the Dead Sea

There's no other experience in Israel like witnessing the sunrise from the top of Masada, an ancient fortification with breathtaking views of the Dead Sea. During my last day in Israel, I climbed the 450m hill while the sun was rising to observe one of the most impressive spectacles of nature that I've ever seen. 

Not far from Masada I also visited the Ein Gedi Natural Reserve, an oasis in the Judean Desert and one of Israel's main hiking spots with stunning waterfalls and landscapes, ending the day with one of my bucket list things to do in Israel: floating and getting covered in mud in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth.
