Day 3 Friday 12th June
We drive into the Judean wilderness to Herod's desert fortress of Masada, which we ascend by cable car. We have an opportunity to float in the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea before lunch. On our return journey to Jerusalem we call at Qumran (where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered). The final part of our journey is to Wadi Qelt, for a spectacular view of St George's desert monastery.
