Masada is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a symbol of courage of the last standing of Jewish patriots in the face of the Roman army in 73 A.D. We hiked up Mount Masada, about 1,400 feet, overlooking the majestic view of the Dead Sea. Reaching its the peak feels like we have been transported to another planet. Surreal yet breathtaking

Location: Israel
