Day 6 – June 6th – Sat – Masada, Dead Sea, Jordan River, Genesis Land Camel Ride
Today, we bid farewell to the Galilee, and continue our journey through the Jordan Valley. We’ll pass by Jericho, the first city conquered by the Israelites in the Promised Land,
Then, to Masada to learn about the dramatic story of almost one thousand men, women, and children who chose suicide rather than becoming Roman slaves. We’ll visit the archeological finds and enjoy the palaces, bathhouses, walls and the remarkable view of the Dead Sea.
We’ll then proceed to swim and float in the Dead Sea, and to enjoy the sun and the famous mud.
We will drive along the shores of the Dead Sea , and stop at Qaser El Yahud on the Jordan River, where many believe Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. This river borders the country of Jordan and Israel.
On our way back, we will stop at Genesis Land to enjoy hospitality with a short camel ride, dates, and hot tea.
