In the morning we took a bus to the old fort of Masada which took us two hours. The bus ride was totally worth it because the highway runs across The Dead Sea and desert all around. The turquoise water of dead sea is mesmerising. Eventually we reached Masada where you could either take a ropeway to the top of the fort or you could hike up the snake path. Since we were running short on time we opted for the Ropeway. On our way back we were hoping to stop by Ein Gedhi which is an infamous oasis in middle of no where but due to Shabbat the bus services on Friday terminate quire early so we had to go back to Jerusalem.
